Please could you direct any queries and completed work to Miss Gleadall's email address. Thank you. smiley

 

Please note that this page has been set up for ALL YEAR FOUR children from both classes. The learning listed here will match what is being taught to children who are still learning in school. Miss Riley will be in school teaching keyworker children. Miss Gleadall and Mrs Wilson will be working remotely from home.

 

Miss Gleadall is going to be running the Teams meetings Monday through to Thursday with Mrs Wilson covering Friday Teams. 

 

We know this will be a worrying time for many of you but rest assured that we are still here so please get in touch if you need to discuss anything with us.

 

Best wishes from all of the year four team.

Thursday afternoon non-screen activities

You might have noticed that science is not on the suggested timetable. Since this is largely practical-based when learning in school, we have chosen not to put it on the weekly timetable. We can however make suggestions for practical experiments that children may wish to do at home with their grown-ups if this is of interest to anyone. We hope to get back to doing full science weeks again upon returning to school.
