Ready, Respectful, Safe

Access home learning for week beginning 27th April here...




This week the children will be investigating the first chapters of the our novel, The Secret Garden. They will meet Mary Maddox and investigate how her character develops and changes during her first months living in Mistlethwaite Manor.


This week we will continue to work on decimal place value and will use the White Rose scheme again for our main structured lessons. Again on Tuesday and Thursday we ask the children to work on the set Mathletics and Rockstar challenges. This week there is also a battle of the bands where our two Year Four classes will compete against each other.


Again there is optional problem solving and a change challenge- this can be completed using the sheets provided or you could set up your own shop in order to work practically away from the computer.


This week we will be investigating roots. You will need to go out in the garden or local area to carefully dig up a dandelion and several small weed seedlings and plants. If you have been growing seeds you can used those seedlings instead.


We have put some useful video links below and you might like to complete our optional cooking task which this week uses a plant's roots as the main ingredient!

Video Killed the Radio Star


I heard you on my wireless back in fifty two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine and new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see
I met your children
What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Pictures came and broke your heart,
Oh - aoh – oh - oh – oh

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember, the jingles used to go,
You were the first one
You were the last one

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car,
we can't rewind we've gone too far

Oh - aoh – oh - oh – oh
Oh – aoh – oh - oh – oh

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star 
In my mind and in my car, 
we can't rewind we've gone too far 
Pictures came and broke your heart 
Put all the blame on V.C.R.

Side by Side


Oh, we ain't got a barrel of money
Maybe we're ragged and funny
But we'll travel along, singin' a song
Side by side

Don't know what's comin' tomorrow
Maybe it's trouble and sorrow
But we'll travel the road, sharin' our load
Side by side

Through all kinds of weather
What if the sky should fall
Just as long as we're together
It doesn't matter at all

When they've all had their quarrels and parted
We'll be the same as we started
Just travelin' along, singin' our song
Side by side
