Maths – Fractions greater than one

Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video slides, and worksheets. (I’ve also put the question sheet and answer sheet below.)

Don’t forget, you can watch, pause and rewind the video as you need to.

You can also visit the BBC Bitesize website for an extra video on today’s maths lesson (Thursday 21st May).

The links are below:

Just a reminder – the idea is that the BBC provides further support to help you learn, you will still need to complete the White Rose question sheet, and as always, you can check your answers.


Today I would like you to re-tell the story of the little shoemaker. You will be doing this today and tomorrow so you don't need to write it all today. Think about the different events in the story and write these down to help you organise your story.


E.g. Setting the scene and describing the main character

A lady is looking at some shoes through the window

All of a sudden a truck pulls up outside and out jumps a posh looking man.

The man steals the little shoemaker's ideas and puts discount on his shoes to win the customers over.

The little shoemaker looses business. Etc


I would say today, you could probably get up to the part where the rival shoemaker steals the ideas of the little shoemaker. 


You do not have a purple mash 2do today. I would like you to use your neatest handwriting to write your story in your workbook or on paper. It's really important that we keep practising our handwriting as we are using the computer a lot.


You can send me your first half of the story today or you can wait and send me the finished story tomorrow. Don't forget the email is: Year4@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk

I look forward to hearing them!



In Science we would have been learning all about food chains. A food chain is used to find out how animals and plants depend on each other. You can also find out what an animal eats by looking at a food chain.

I would like you to look at the two powerpoints below. One will be a recap over what you would have learnt in previous years. The orange one is new learning and will teach you some new vocabulary.


Then I would like you to log onto purple mash and do the quiz on food chains. It should come up as a 2do on your alerts. Test your knowledge on how much you have remembered
