Good Morning Year 4! I hope you and your families are well and that you have enjoyed some time in the sunshine.

Welcome back to the Summer Term School online! Even though we are not together in classrooms we can continue to make the most of our Remote Learning. 

This morning I am working on uploading activities for our Topic this half term which is:  'It's Raining it's Pouring!'

It is lovely to see some of the work you have been doing at home and especially some of the art and crafts, hopefully we can fit some more of that into the online activities.

Some parents have expressed difficulty with printing out work so I shall endeavour to provide tasks that can be done in exercise books to save having to print out sheets.
