Year 4

Hello Year 4,

I hope that you are all doing well and had a good weekend.

From this week there will be a change to the work on our webpage. Instead of different tasks from me, you will need to click on to the BBC Bitesize link and complete the lessons on there.

There will be an activity set for you to complete based around either a topic or PSHE.

 This week the tasks are for PSHE. There are some interesting lessons around health and wellbeing particularly safety. Please ask an adult to look through the lessons before you complete them so that they can have a look at the content.

 Please try to complete as much as you can but remember to take some time to do something that you enjoy or helps you to relax.

Make sure you continue to practice your spellings on Spelling shed. Perhaps you could ask someone in your house to test you once a week? Don't forget Time tables rock stars, I am ready to accept your challenges! Well done to Chris, Erik, Salma, Ryan and Kacey who all challenged me this week.

Keep smiling, remember to be kind and stay safe.

Miss Watson
