Maths - Lesson 2 - Equivalent fractions

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 (Tuesday 19th 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.

Literacy - The Little Shoemaker

I really enjoyed reading your work inspired by the little shoemaker yesterday so thought we'd do more work on it today.

Today, you are going to describe the rival shoemaker but I'd like you to think of specific vocabulary that will make him sound cunning and sly. I have written some ideas below to help you but your aim is to describe him (including his personality) using effective vocabulary that will make him sound like an un-liked character!

Your 2do is on Purple mash, again as a bordered page, this time titled 'Rival shoemaker'. If you'd rather write it in your workbook you can do so and just email me a picture of your work... Year4@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk


Have fun

Here is my example:

With crafty looking eyes, as thin as a letterbox, this devious, slender man hopped out of his truck. Where had this conniving character come from? Not from round here that’s for sure. He wore a tailcoat that looked as if it had only just had its final stitch completed seconds ago. To match his black, expensive looking suit, he wore a tall top hat which sat on top of auburn, tufted hair. His nose was as curved as a pelican’s beak and his smile was as cunning and deceiving as his demeanour. At the end of his matchstick arms, he wore pure cotton, linen gloves. This man was a preened show dog! Twisting round in his gangly fingers, this shoemaker had a brass topped cane. Upon looking closer, you would notice that the brass top of his cane was in fact in the shape of a shoe. He really did look quite the part. He slinked over to the customer looking in the shop window and with a flick of his cane, his cart turned into a portable shoe shop. With that, this scheming man raised his eyebrows and extended his arm waiting to be admired.


Following on from our previous Geography lesson about contours, you will look at longitude and latitude today and what these terms mean. I would like you to watch the video clips from the link below. Activity 1 will test you on your knowledge you have learned from the videos and Activity 2 involves drawing specific things on a world map. If you cannot print this, just draw an outline of the map on some paper and use this to complete the task.

Any work you complete would be great to see so feel free to send it to me at:
