Home learning wc 5.1.21

Hello everyone, we hope that you are all well and keeping safe. Please take a look at  the below copies of your English, Maths, History and RE activities which are already on your Microsoft Teams. You do not need to print anything to complete this work, though it would be useful for you to record your ideas down and keep them all together in a notebook or work book at home. You should be able to complete these activities on your own as we understand your grown ups may be working from home. As we are beginning mid-week this time, please make sure you have had a go at each of the activities we have set today by Friday 8th January 2021 – we understand this is all very new to everyone so please don’t panic if you can’t do it all, just try to complete what you can. We will set you new work for next week and this will be posted on Microsoft Teams every Monday so that you have a whole week to work through it from home. If you cannot load the attachments or see any pictures properly, please take a look at the Year 4 school blog as we shall put everything on there too just in case you need it. Take care everyone, Miss Honeywell, Miss Jackson-Nash and Mrs Cairns.
