Guided reading

This week we are looking at letter writing and so our guided reading will be working on this. Use the letter text from yesterday and answer the questions. 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 difference between formal and informal letters

SC1: I can explain what formal and informal mean

SC2: I can pick out formal and informal phrases

SC3: I can discuss the differences between formal and informal letters




What does formal and informal mean?  Think back to our Aspirational Café experience where we wrote formal letters to our parents inviting them to the café. What other examples of formal writing did we think of? Can you also give me examples of purposes of writing informal letters? Have you ever written a letter other than when you are asked to at school? Do your family have to write letters? What are they for?

Have a look at the example letters from yesterday. Which is informal and which formal? How do you know?  Now have a look at the phrases I have given you. Can you sort them putting the correct phrases under the headings ‘formal’ and ‘informal’?

Extension – if you want to have a look at the letters and see if you can pick out an examples of formal and informal phrases. (this is extra and you do not have to do this.)

Have a look at mine and see if you had the phrases in the right columns. We are going to be using these phrases to help us when we write our own letters.


Break time/snack time

11:00 – 11:30


11:30- 12:15

LO: to find a unit fraction of a set of objects/numbers

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

Extension – unit fractions of objects. 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. There is an answer sheet to be able to mark your work.

12:15- 1:15


1:15- 2:15

LO: to understand that helping others wellbeing also has a positive impact on my own wellbeing

SC1: I can recall what wellbeing means

SC2: I can list 5 things I can do to make others feel good

SC3: I can explain how doing things for others will make me feel good



When we feel good this is called well-being.  We do things like exercise and healthy eating to keep our body healthy but we have to do things to keep our mind and emotions healthy too. One way of ‘filling your bucket’ is by doing nice things for other people. Doing nice things for others also makes ourselves feel good so everybody wins!!

I want you to think of five kind acts they can do over the next few days. Perhaps you will be more helpful at home, be kind to a sibling or pet, or see how they could support a good cause. Remember by staying at home as much as possible you are all helping save lives - this could be one of their kind acts. Washing hands for 20 seconds with soap and water and maintaining a safe distance from others when you all have to go outside, are all acts of kindness. Create a table with your 5 targets of kind things you want to achieve. Can you find a way of tracking if you have managed to do them?​​​​​​​

2:15- 2:40

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

2:40 – 3:00

IDL Numeracy – complete the lessons you have been set based on your assessment results. I will be logging in and seeing that you have done this and looking for how much progress you have made. J
