Year 4 2019 - 2020
What a fantastic week you've had, we have loved receiving your email updates and photographs of your work, feel free to keep sending them in to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here you will find your weekly learning tasks for English and Maths. There are activities for each day of the week, this is your learning and your timetable so it's entirely up to you which order you complete them in or how long you spend on them. These will change every week so you always have a new challenge a try.
When you have completed your daily English and Maths, we have created a series of projects for Science and each foundation subject. These projects can be found in the "Files to Download" section below. The projects will be updated every two weeks to give you time to get through them all.
We hope that you enjoy your home learning and find the activities set fun and engaging!
Stay safe and healthy. We hope to see you very soon.
