There are 2 options for guided reading, you can continue with the book and the questions that I will post below or I have found some books to read if you find this too hard. Have a look through, if you would like help with a level or a book to read a day then please email me and I will help.

Guided Reading

LO: To be able to understand how to use inference

SC1: I can identify what inference is

SC2: I can understand what inference can tell me about a text

SC3: I can justify my inferences


Please read the pages attached below and then answer the questions below. Make sure that you justify your answers using the conjunctions because.


I know this because.. 

This part tells me… because… 


  1. Can you infer as to why J K Rowling used the word parchment when describing the letter to Harry rather than paper? Explain your answer? 

  2. What can you infer that Uncle Vernon was feeling is his face turned from red to green faster than a traffic light? 

  3. What would Harry be thinking when he was listening through the crack under the door to the kitchen? 

  4. What can we infer about the character Uncle Vernon if he was talking ‘wildly’? 

  5. What can you infer Harry would be thinking and feeling when he found out the people sending the letters knew he was in the smallest bedroom? 

  6. What did the scream come from at the end of the passage? USe your knowledge of the story you have read to inform your answer? 




LO: To be able to understand how to improve my writing
SC1: I can identify where I can improve
SC2: I can understand how to improve my writing
SC3: I can use resources to help me

Today we are going to edit and revise our writing. I am sure that you have produced some really nice work, but we can always make it better. 

For this we are going to use ARMS

A = add = Does your writing make sense?

R = remove = who cares? Does your writing help the story, does it need to be there

M = Move = Sentence starters, are they varied and different? 

S = substitute = Can you upskill any words for better ones. Use a thesaurus to help you or google


Here is my first sentence from my modelled version yesterday. 

To revise your work you take it 1 sentence at a time and go through ARMS. 

First you ask, does that sentence make sense? Which it does, so there is nothing to change. 

Second, is there anything that does not help the story? No so again there is nothing to change

Next, you look at the starter, where I have used a fronted adverbial phrase for place, so no need to change. 

Finally, I look for words that I would like to upskill and improve. I think that I can improve SITTING to a better word. So I would use a thesaurus or google to look for better words. 

There are - perch or rest. I like rest as it tells me about the character of the frogs at the same time, that they are comfortable and happy with the situation. So I will change it to that. 

You should do this with every sentence. Go through one at a time. I have attached my modelled version of the editing and revising below to help you.

LO: To be able to understand addition and subtraction problems with multiple steps (KNOW knowledge)

SC1: I can recognise which operation is required

SC2: I can select a suitable method for addition and subtraction

SC3: I can solve 2-step problems involving addition and subtraction
