As we come to the end of this half term, we are finishing our focus on The Secret Garden. If we had been in school, we would have been watching the 1993 version of the film.
We’re sorry that there is no free online version to watch, although it is available at a small cost on You Tube. If you do get to watch it, fantastic, but don’t worry if you cannot access it. The activity this week is to write a film OR book review (it doesn’t matter if you haven’t completely finished the book!). It would be great if you could look at other reviews of children’s films before you start.
For the short summary, something like: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse matches bold storytelling with striking animation for a purely enjoyable adventure with heart, humor, and plenty of superhero action.
For the longer review, something like: Agent Toby Barks, a live-action comedy, tells the story of dog with a double life. At home with his family, Toby (voiced by Jon Lovitz) is the best pet ever. But at night, when his humans are asleep, Toby's a talking canine and an important member of a team of high-ranking US government agents. The movie is a slapstick comedy with larger-than-life villains and suspense. An infinite number of bad guys -- hulking, tattooed, snarling, and totally incompetent -- chase, capture, and intimidate the heroes. Cartoon violence includes fistfights, falls, knock-downs. Characters are frozen, gassed, thrown, and zapped. A heroic woman scientist is held hostage and threatened with torture by a cackling villain. Okay for children who are comfortable with slapstick comedy.
The spellings this week are words that start with ex-
Please make sure your child understands what the words mean before they learn to spell them! There’s no point learning words when you don’t know what they mean!

In science this week there are TWO lessons where you will be taking a closer look at flowers and how they are constructed. All flowers are designed to do the same job, to make seed for the plant. To do this most plants have to attract animals to pollinate them. Have a look at this website to discover that it isn't just bees that do the job:
