9:30-10:15 Guided Reading

Know (understanding)

LO: To understand how a writer uses inference in a text.

SC1. I can explain what inference is.

SC2. I can give examples of inference from the text.

SC3. I can explain why an author wants us to use the skill of inference.

Each day, as well as including the text for you to read, I am also including the audio recording of the chapter. You should only use this is you feel you need support to develop your understanding of the text and/or to support you with your reading.

 

 

Group One – Ch 17

Use a dictionary to find the following words:

Minutely

Overwhelming

Irritation

Tentatively

Stuttering

During this chapter, Albert and Joey are finally reunited. Answer the following questions in your books, using the text to support your answers:

1) What can you infer about the soldier who speaks at the bottom of page 136 and all of 137? What kind of person is he? How do the other soldiers react to him?

2) What can you infer about how Joey was feeling when he “pawed the ground with his bad leg in an effort to make Albert look”?

3) David keeps trying to tell Albert that this could be Joey but Albert thinks that David is teasing him. Why do you think he is reacting this way? How does Albert currently feel about his search for Joey?

4) Why, when Albert recognises Joey, was there “no longer any pain””? What can you infer about Joey from this?

 

Group Two – Page 142-145

Use a dictionary to find the following words:

Tirelessly

Vigorously

Impatient

During this chapter, Albert and Joey are finally reunited. Answer the following questions in your books, using the text to support your answers:

1) David keeps trying to tell Albert that this could be Joey but Albert thinks that David is teasing him. Why do you think he is reacting this way? How does Albert currently feel about his search for Joey?

2) Why, when Albert recognises Joey, was there “no longer any pain””? What can you infer about Joey from this?

 

10:15-11:00 Maths

LO: To understand the steps required when using the compact method (with regrouping)
SC1: I can present my work neatly
SC2: I can identify when and how I need regroup
SC3: I can solve multiplication problems (4-digit x 1-digit)

Today we are multiplying using the compact method where we have to regroup. As we are not putting each number separately it is important that you are clear and accurate with your regrouping.
Watch the tutorial below and work through the method before moving onto the PowerPoint to complete the questions, including the extensions. You can then find the answers in a separate PowerPoint so you can mark your own work.

It is important to follow the steps and remind yourself of the success criteria when working through the questions.

 

 

11:00-11:15 Break

 

11:15-12:30 English

Show (analysing)
LO: To be able to edit and revise a piece of writing.
SC1. I can consider strategies for improving my writing.
SC2. I can choose vocabulary which engages the reader.
SC3. I can edit a text, checking that I have challenged myself.
SC4. I can rewrite my edited text in full.

Today, you will be editing and revising your piece of writing. If you sent me your first section last night you will have received some notes about your work and you will need to use these to help you edit your work.

When editing, you must really challenge yourself to consider how you can improve your work. This is not always an easy task but it is one which is worth doing as it will help you lift your work to the next level.

To help you with your work today I have included a PowerPoint and a video tutorial.
