Guided reading.

This week we are looking at letter writing and so our guided reading will be working on this. Rather than having a new text every day like last week there will be one text and you will be answering questions about it each day. There is an extension for those who would like to do a bit extra and the answers are at the bottom. Each day the questions will be working on a different area of reading (skill).


LO: to recall the features of a letter

SC1: I can identify the standard features of a letter

SC2: I can find similarities in letters

SC3: I can spot differences in letters and explain why they are different



This week’s challenge is about random acts of kindness and we are going to try and bring a little bit of joy into someone else’s life during this time by communicating with them. How do we communicate with each other? Take 2 minutes and think of as many different ways as possible. (talk, phone, email, letters, etc.)




We are going to be focusing on letter writing this week but even this could take several forms. Have a think about the different form of letter writing we could use. (e.g. email, post card, card, letter) What is the purpose of writing letters? Why do we write letters?

All letters have a similar structure which means how a text is organised. Can you create a spider diagram on ‘what all letters include’? E.g. address, date, who it is to, who it is from.



Have a look at the example letters I have given you and see if you can create a list of features in 2 columns. Put features that are similar between all the letters on one side and features that are different on the other. This is going to help us when we come to organising our own letter.


Break time/snack time

See How you get on with a studio session and a sound check. You are making fantastic progress with your response times and the accuracy of your answers. Keep going!

11:30- 12:15

LO: to recognise where fractions belong on a number line

Click on week 2 lesson 1. Watch the tutorial and then answer the questions. You can use the mark sheet to see how accurate you were.

Extension – Fractions on a number line. Year 3 if you are feeling confident then give this a go. Year 4, you pre-existing knowledge of fractions and the revision you have just done should mean that you can complete this. If you are struggling let me know.

1:15- 2:00

LO: to recall what I already know about kindness

SC1: I can recall what kindness means

SC2: I can explain how kindness makes others feel

Thoughts... image by Lorraine | Spike milligan, Smile thoughts ...

Watch the video by Miss Fermor and Mrs Mitchell to see what this week’s challenge is all about. Now that you have listened to the story can you think about all the things you now to do with kindness.







Think about what the word kindness means. Draw a mind map and write down some words related to kindness. How does kindness make you feel? Write or draw what kindness means. Can you think of instances where kindness has made a difference to you or when you know your kindness has made a difference to someone else?

2:00- 2:30

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!


IDL Numeracy – please complete this week’s assessment and write down your score. I will be logging in and seeing that you have done this and looking for how much progress you have made.
