LEARNING FROM HOME - SUPPORT
 

Hello everyone! I hope you are all safe and well. 

I have posted some additional resources to children in year 4 - please feel free to use them if hard copies work well for your child but don't feel you have to if you have established a routine which works well for your family.

Below you will find some specific resources and guidance for home learning activities for the start of the summer term. There are some excellent home learning resources for Year 4 available at:

For maths: 
 
For English (and some other subjects): 

I also highly recommend that you access the Year 4 daily lessons, available from BBC Bitesize and also www.thenational.academy (search for Oak National Academy). The Oak National Academy provides on-line lessons delivered by teachers with all resources included.

Please upload any work that you have completed to Seesaw so that I can see your amazing work and give you some feedback. If you need any help or have additional questions then please get in touch by email.  Thank you very much to everyone who is doing this already.

Stay safe, keep busy and keep in touch. From Mrs Drysdale
