Guided reading

Today we will continue with The Wonder Garden and find out about the Himalayas. There is not yet a quiz on this lovely book, but perhaps one of you could make one?

Have a THINK about the following questions:



  • Compare the Bengal tiger and red panda. How are they similar/different?
  • Why do you think the author is keen to introduce endangered animals throughout the book?
  • In what ways is the book more like a fiction book than a non-fiction?


We have now finished The Wonder Garden. See if you can match the description to the habitat in the activity below and then try to be like Kristjana Williams and paint magnificent pictures through your use of vocabulary. Click on the document below to find out more!


We are dividing 3 digits by 1 digit. I know that some of you know how to use the bus stop method, however in Year 4, it is not expected that you know this yet! So you can use partitioning and a part whole model to help you. If you do know how to use the bus stop method, feel free to use it.


We are moving onto looking at the fish in our diet today. Find out about how fish are caught, reared and processed. (There is a recipe included - you do not have to do this!)


Birdseye are a popular company who make products with fish. Luckily they source fish and seafood responsibly. 


Your task today is to make an advert, explaining why a customer should pick your product (Birdseye) rather than a cheaper option. You need to explain that you believe in sustainability. See if you can create a jingle or slogan. 


I have attached their website to help you.
