Year 4

Hello Year 4.

I hope you have been enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having this week.

On the grid below are some more activities to keep you busy next week. You can choose between this weeks grid or last weeks grid (click here), but try remember to tweet if you have completed any activities. 

I have also updated purple mash with some 2Dos if you wish to complete these as well.

Remember to pace yourselves, not all the work on the grids has to be completed each week.

I want learning to be fun and exciting, not stressful. The key is to make sure you are enjoying everything that you are doing.

I miss you all. Keep washing those hands and keep smiling.

Mr Malt
