Welcome to Year 4

 

COVID-19

Enjoying school at home

 

We have put together a timetable for you to try to stick to whilst your are studying at home instead of in school.  This timetable can be found in the workbook that we provided for you to work in whilst you are at home.  It can also be found below in FILES TO DOWNLOAD.  We are well aware that this may be a tricky time and thought that the timetable may help to keep you focussed whilst you are having to spend lots of time away from school.

Please remember if you have any problems or just fancy a chat email: year4covid19@yahoo.com
