Welcome to Year 4

Mrs Pollock, the Deputy Head is also our class teacher. Throughout the week we also have help from Mrs Garnett, Mrs Maddock and Mrs Smith. laugh


Week beginning 6th July 2020

Good morning gang! Happy Monday! We're one week closer to the summer holidays so let's keep working hard before you transition into Year 5. I'm looking forward to seeing all your wonderful work this week. 

I recommend that you complete x1 Maths, x1 English, x1 Reading and x1 task from the wider curriculum section each day. This will certainly prepare you for transitioning into Upper Key Stage Two and keep your brain ticking over. However, just complete as much as you can and do not worry if everything is not finished by the end of the week. Have a look at this timetable for inspiration and try making your own!

Parents/Carers - please note that some worksheets are differentiated by levels. Children are expected to complete whichever level they are most comfortable with. Once your child has worked independently on the task, please mark every worksheet and upload a picture of it on Seesaw. Many thanks. 

If you have any questions or need support, feel free to message me on Seesaw and I'm happy to help.

Hope you're all keeping well.

Maths tasks

English tasks

Science - have a look at these cool experiments and complete as many as you can. An adult will be needed to supervise you!
