Hello Year 4.
I am looking forward to seeing some of you next week. I'm missing you all and I wish we could have had everyone coming back in. We will hopefully be able to see each other soon.
My challenge for you this week is to upload any pictures of work you have done to our purple mash class blog. Click here to see instructions on how to do this.
I have uploaded a new learning grid this week so there is plenty to keep you busy!
I have also set some more 2do's on purple mash and I enjoy reading your comments so that I can leave a comment back to you.
I miss you all. Stay safe. Keep smiling. Look after yourselves. Keep washing your hands.
You can still choose between the activities on this weeks grid or from any previous week.
