Reciprocal Reading


Today, you are going to read a non-fiction text called ‘Pet Care of Guinea Pigs’.


Work through the Reading PowerPoint and complete today’s written task. The chapter is attached below.


Here is the order we usually follow in class for Reciprocal Reading:

  • Predict (sensible guess)
  • Read the pages
  • Clarify the meaning of words you didn’t know
  • Answer the questions
  • Summarise



Today, your task is to write your letter from the view of Iron Man to the farmers.


Below is a checklist for each table group. Keep referring back to it and by the end of your letter you should have met all of the criteria.


Be sure to use the notes from your planning yesterday. I am looking forward to reading your letters. Remember to send them to me via email and I can read them and post them on our class page.


When you are finished, double check you have included all of the letter writing checklist.



ROYG - In maths today, we are going to look at a problem solving challenge. Make notes and be creative. Your working out does not need to be organised, you can make jottings and note down ideas in whichever way you would like.


Your question is a riddle. Guess my number, use the riddle to work out which numbers they may be describing.


Remember to show resilience and perseverance in these types of questions.


The answer is attached but for parents only. You can work through the answers with a parent once you have completed the questions.


After you have completed this task, I would like you to practise your times tables. You can do this by logging in to TimesTableRockstars or you can use Daily 10 as you did on Wednesday afternoon.


Blue - Today, you will continue to practise subtracting.


Here is the link to a video that will teach you everything you need to know for this lesson, just as I would teach you in class:


After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.



After a long week of hard work, let’s cool down and relax with some yoga.


Yoga is good for us because:

  • It helps us with our worries.
  • It helps with our emotions.
  • It helps us to feel good about ourselves.
  • It helps with our concentration.
  • It helps us with our memory.
  • It develops our strength and flexibility.
