Dear Year 4 Pupils,

We hope you are enjoying the Easter holidays and have had a look at some of the activities and resources we put up last week.

In the meantime, we have provided further learning for the week beginning 13th April 2020.

Complete the activities in your exercise books if you cannot access a printer – just make sure you write the date and title of the lesson/task. Please work within your own schedule and at your own pace and ensure you have a break in between each subject.

Happy learning!

From Ms. Duong and the Year 4 Team.
