Guided reading

Today we will continue with The Wonder Garden and find out about the Black Forest.

Have a THINK about the following questions:

  • What do you think the words ‘flooded’ and ‘blanketed’ mean?
  • What words tell us this forest has influenced fairy tales?
  • Why has the author decided to use the sounds each animal makes to introduce each paragraph?


The book The Wonder Garden has brilliant vocabulary – lots that we don’t use in everyday life. I have created a bit of a word bank. Your job is to look up the definition of each word. Do not write down a definition until you understand what it means!


Continuing with division, we are working our similar problems to yesterday but with remainders. Use the same process, but any leftover numbers are known as remainders.

Division Using Place Value Counters


During a time when we are washing our hands continuously, I thought that you might like to do a science experiment about it! I am hoping you will have most of this equipment around the house anyway, but I am sure there are easy substitutions if you don't. The important, scientific bit, is recording your predictions and conclusions on the sheet. Enjoy!
