Guided Reading

Our guided reading today is completing the questions on the extract from 'The Butterfly Lion' by Michael Morpurgo.


If you have a Home Learning pack you will find a copy in there, if not I have uploaded the text and questions below. In addition, I have also added the link to Discovery Education where the activity came from. 


Don't worry about the amount of reading: you can share the reading with a grown-up or listen to a grown-up read it to you. 


When you have completed the questions, have a think about these:

  • Do you think you would like to read more of this text?
  • What has 'hooked' you as a reader?
  • Think about our writing lenses while you read the text again - seeing, hearing, smelling etc. Can you identify where the writer has used any of the lenses? Have a go. smiley


I have also uploaded a copy of the writing rainbow to help you. 

On Discovery Education there is an additional quiz.
