Guided Reading

If you are a Lexia student please make sure you have done this instead of guided reading.

LO: To develop vocabulary skills


SC1: I can read an unfamiliar text

SC2: I can skim and scan a text for information

SC3: I can find out the meanings of new words


Here is today’s guided reading tutorial. The screenshots and words follow










Find out what the following words mean based on the text. Use each one in a full sentence and make sure that you have punctuated each sentence correctly:










Now pick out three examples of ‘technical’ vocabulary from the text, and explain their meaning



LO: To plan a speech on a given topic

SC1: I can think about what makes a good speech.

SC2: I can choose ideas and make justifications

SC3: I can plan my ideas carefully using bullet points


Firstly, watch this speech given by Greta Thunberg. There is a great deal of scienctific language which you may not understand, but think about WHY it is an effective speech. Have a discussion with someone at home or in school about what makes this so effective- write your ideas down.I have attached some guides about what makes an effective speech.







Now watch my tutorial outlining how I made my choices from my mind map about what I am going to write about in my speech. I have attached my model written example for you to refer to as a good example- remember to use bullet points and punctuate them correctly.This is just the planning stage and choose only three things from your mind map.







Break time/snack time

11:00 – 11:30


Make sure you complete 2 studio sessions and 2 sound checks before going onto the garage. Feel free to challenge me!

11:30 – 12:15


Arithmetic starter

We will continue to work on our x7 table this morning. Visit the ‘Topmarks’ website and visit ‘Hit the button’ to further practise your x7 table. I’ve given you the link here. Can you keep beating your previous score?


LO: To create my own chart or graph

SC1: I can carry out my own survey

SC2: I can create either a bar chart or a pictogram

SC3: I can interrogate my results and say what they show


Today, I would like you to carry out your own survey so that you can create your own bar chart or pictogram. You could count different coloured flowers in your garden, the different types of tins in your cupboard or survey the cars in your street. If you are going to do this, please make sure that an adult accompanies you outside. I have attached at the bottom an example of the survey I did and my completed bar chart.

I would also like you to interrogate your graph and tell me at least 5 things it tells you. Enjoy carrying out your own survey! For an additional challenge, draw a bar chart AND a pictogram and see which one suits the data more clearly.

12:15- 1:15


1:15 - 2:00


LO: To investigate recycled materials

SC1: I can choose one concept from my mood board to investigate further

SC2: I can experiment with recycled materials

SC3: I can create an idea for what I am going to make


This afternoon I would like you to look at your concept board and choose one of the art ideas to develop further. You need to choose carefully as you will be making a piece of artwork on Thursday.

I’ve attached an example of a plan where I have taken one idea and researched it further. When you have done this, experiment with the material you have chosen- paper, buttons, bottle tops- and see what ideas you can come up with. Take some photos of your ideas but remember this is not the finished piece- just the experimenting stage. 


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!
