Hello Year 4!

Another week has started and we are rapidly reaching the end of the school year.  Although it has not been how we would have wanted to spend the last few months, ithas been great catching up with you at home via teams.  Do try to join us again throughout the week especailly for our Friday catch up sessions.

This weeks topic is all about 'Games' so its time to get your thinking caps on to create new games as well as having a chance to play older ones that you already know.

Maths this week is all about telling the time.  Why not join us for our live lessons this week.

This week's literacy is all about a new novel - Phillip Pullman's 'The Firework Maker's Daughter and again you can join us for live lessons during the week.

Don't forget to keep in touch with anything you have been doing via email.

 4CD TEAMS Meets - Week Commencing 6th July

On Friday 10th July I would like to hold a Whole Class Teams Catch Up at 3pm.  This will give you an opportunity to speak to you friends and share any of the work you have completed about The Firework Makers Daughter.

This meeting is in addition to the Live Lessons that are being held during the week and are listed on the timetable below.

 

4AW, you asked for a timetable so here it is! Please come along to as many sessions as you are able - I have focussed very much on Maths this week as I feel telling the time and working with units of time is a useful skill for all. Please also email me any other feedback about TEAMS sessions or if you have any ideas for our end of year TEAMS session.
