Hope you all had a lovely half term and enjoyed the weather. 


Literacy
This week we would like you to complete the English activities on Oak National Academy website again (this is the same website that Miss Aldridge has used to set your Maths work the past few weeks). If you are struggling to navigate the website, then watch her video again, but select English rather than maths. Complete lessons 1-5 in the character description.

Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is mental health week: its theme is kindness which is something we have spoken a lot about in Year 4 this year. With that in mind we would like you to carry out some random acts of kindness around the home. Follow this link for suggested daily tasks:
