9:30 – 9:50 Guided Reading

There are 2 options for guided reading.

You can read a section from our new book and answer the questions that I will

post below. I have recorded a video of me reading the text and asking the

questions but please only use this if you are unable to read the text independently.  


If you find the task above too challenging, I have found some books to read.

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 make inferences based on the information I have read.

SC3: I can justify my inferences with evidence from the text.


  1. How do you think Hiccup was feeling when he ‘swallowed hard’?
  2. Can you infer how Hiccup felt about his knowledge of dragons? What information from the text has helped you to make this inference?
  3. Can you infer why nobody wanted to ask Gobber a question?
  4. Can you infer how the ten boys were feeling on page 20? What evidence can you find in the text to justify your opinion?





English 9:50-10:30

LO: To be able to use appropriate vocabulary to add description. 

SC1: I can identify adjectives to describe a character’s appearance.

SC2: I can apply my knowledge of imagery to describe a character’s appearance.

SC3: I can select ambitious, yet relevant, vocabulary to describe appearance. 



Today, as we unpick the features which make a great character description,

we start with appearance. Using the expert piece, identify the words and phrases

which Roald Dahl uses to describe appearance. What techniques is he using to

create these descriptions which tell the reader about the appearance of a


Then, choosing your own familiar character, create a colour-coded mind map to

describe their appearance using adjectives, metaphors and similes. 

From your mind map, I would then like you to write a description of your

character’s appearance using the information in your mind map to support you

but also demonstrating your knowledge of varied sentence lengths

(covered on Monday).

On the documents attached to the bottom of this page, you will find sentences to

describe appearance which I would like you to up-level. You will also find an

adjective word mat which you may find useful. 

Reflection- Which of the three devices did you find most challenging? How can

you develop this weakness? 


If you’re finding this task challenging, try recording similes and adjectives to

describe your character, or Mr Wormwood who I modelled in my tutorial. You

can ‘magpie’ some of my ideas and build your sentences to describe the way he




Break time/snack time

11:00 – 11:30


Take part in the TTRockstars Year 4 challenge. Go to the ‘Battle of the Bands’ to

make Beavers the best. OR you can try a sound check or even challenge me if you

would like.




Maths 11:30 – 12:15

LO: To be able to know how to multiply
SC1: I can understand what multiply means
SC2: I can know what symbol mean multiply
SC3: I can partition a number

For this maths lesson we will be continuing with our multiplication, but we will be

taking it a little further. Have a look at the video and the worked example to help

you with this. 

I have attached a Chilli Challenge and some reasoning questions for you to try. 




There is also a worked example which you can look at to help or rewatch the

video if you need to.
