Guided Reading

Each week, we will set the Guided Reading tasks on TEAMS and would really like you to send your responses to it in this way.  However, if you struggle to access the resources we will insert them into the webpage each day too.  Even if you access the materials here, where possible, please submit your answers via TEAMs. If all else fails email your work to:

WCGR week 4 questions

Chapter 4- dinosaur trouble


Today’s maths look at dividing in equal parts.  During the video, they demonstrate cutting up a blank 100 square into equal parts.  Folowing the video, there is a sheet you are welcome to print / drawyour own.  Have a go at cutting the grids out and dividing them into equal parts.  Can you write a division calculation for each cut you make? Make sure each part is equal.

In today’s lesson, we are going to recap punctuating speech and begin writing your version of chapter 2 with a twist. If you are struggling to think of some of your own ideas-please do not worry!!!! We do understand that creative writing at home can be quite challenging as you don’t always have someone to bounce your ideas off/check you are on the right track like you might do in the classroom. Your writing task spans over two lessons and before tomorrows lesson we have invited you to a TEAMS meeting to share your ideas and check everyone feels confident enough to have a good go.  You can also use the scaffolds provided in the video lessons as much/as little as suits you. We will be proud of you no matter what you produce, as long as you try your best! We know you all have such interesting imaginations and we are really looking forward to reading your twists on the tale.


As last week, here is your weekly spellings and spelling task.  You can either print these sheets out and record your practice attempts in the boxes or write the spelling words out a few times/put them into sentences on some paper from home.

These are from EdShed so you can log in using the details found at the back of your diary and play the interactive spelling games to help you practice if you think this might help.  We won’t be setting a formal time to test your spellings but if you would like to please feel free to organise a time to test yourselves and let us know your scores.

Forest School Art

We were so impressed that so many of you continued to enjoy our Forest School activities at home.  We loved seeing your 3D sculptures last week as well as the obligatory hot chocolate! Today we are using our sketching skills again. Rememeber when we practised using different grades of pencil and had a go at creating different effects with them as well as show shadow? See if these skills can be put into practise this week! We are setting you the task of sketching your Andy Goldsworthy artwork as well as an object of your choice that you find on your garden or daily walk. Watch the video to find out more:

As ever, we are here to help, no matter how small the query!

Take care
