Guided Reading

 

Today we are going to be introduced to the story. Follow the video below and pause it at 2 minutes 57 seconds. This will have read Chapter 1. Whilst you are listening, think about what sort of person Edwin is. I have also attached the document of the story below, if you would rather read it yourself. 

I Was There ... 1066

Think about this question:

 

What sort of a person is Edwin?

Use evidence to support your answer.

 

From listening to/reading the first chapter, what character traits does Edwin show? Is he brave, strong, weak or kind?

Look at an example answer below. Notice the use of evidence from the text in this answer to back up your argument. 

 

Using the sentence frames below, answer the question about what sort of character Edwin is in your own words. 

 

Maths 

 

Today we will be focusing on subtracting (take away) 3-digits from 3-digits, with no exchange. This is a skill we really focused on in school, to understand how to solve questions like this, using column subtraction. Watch the video below, before having a go at answering the worksheet linked below.
