Guided Reading 


We are going to start our new chapter book today in Guided Reading – The Hodgeheg.


In the additional resources, there is a PDF of the entire book and the questions today will be based on Chapter 5.




What does ‘re-cross the street’ mean?



Why did Max wait a while?



What is the strange shaped building?



Why does Max run towards the stranger?


Imagine that you are a hedgehog. Describe what a post-box would look like. Remember – you don’t know that it’s called a post-box!



 For this week’s English, we are going to write our own stories using a monster as the character.


So, todays lesson, I want you to draw your own monster! In the additional resources, there are some examples that you can magpie and take parts from! Make sure you have enough detail because tomorrow we are going to describe them! 



In the additional resources, there is a couple of sheets on time. 


Have a go at these! 


Our topic at the moment is “Women in History’


We have looked so far at Vivienne Westwood, Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.


Your challenge for today is to answer this question:

Who is Amelia Earhart? 

Tuesday 19th May


Guided Reading 

In the additional resources, there is a PDF of the entire book and the questions today will be based on Chapter 6.




Why does Pa feel guilty?



Does the hedgehog from 5B really think that a cat ate his Munchimeat?



Which neighbour says they saw Max?


What do you think is going through Ma’s mind when Pa says ‘Sounds like something got run over’?



What order did the noise happen in?



So, after designing your own monsters yesterday, today – where do they live?

In the additional resources, I have added some different ‘homes’ where monsters could live. Remember, don’t forget detail! So we can describe them in detail tomorrow! 



This is the same video as yesterday, watch it again and have a go at the sheets in the additional resources. 


Read this:


Very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb where Jesus had been laid.  They found the stone covering the tomb had been rolled away, so they went in; but they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  They stood there puzzled about this, when suddenly two men in bright shining clothes stood by them.  Full of fear, the women bowed down to the ground, as the men said to them,


“The Lord Jesus is not here; he has been raised from the dead he is alive.  Remember what he said to you while he was in Galilee: that he would be crucified, and three days later rise to life.”


Then the women remembered his words and returned from the tomb and gave the message to the eleven disciples and all the rest.

Luke 24 1-9


Answer these questions:
- How do you think the women felt?

- What was the message the men gave to the women?

- What had Jesus told them to remember? 

- How do you think the eleven disciples felt when they heard the news from the women?



Think about the special news the women told the disciples.  What words do you think they used and how do you think they felt?   Record this as a diary entry which begins with: You will never believe what happened today…
