Hello Year 4 and welcome to our 2nd week of remote school.  We hope you all had a restful weekend.  As you can see, the layout is slightly different this week.  All the learning that you need will be under the heading for whichever day we are on.  Also, it will tell you how long you should be taking to complete the learning for each subject.

Have a good week and we look forward to seeing your learning in the emails that you send us.

Mrs Stewart and Mrs Richardson
