Welcome to Year 4!

 

 

 

Hello Year 4!

I can't believe how quickly this year has gone and how this week is your last week of Year 4! We have got lots of lovely activities lined up. 

 

Reminders:

  • No toys/stuffed animals should be brought in from home. 
  • Make sure you have trainers with you in school as we will still be having regular movement sessions each day.
  • Make sure you bring in a water bottle to keep hydrated throughout the day and a piece of fresh fruit or veg for snack time.
  • Please make sure you bring in suncream and sunhats now that the weather is warmer. 
  • Homework will still be uploaded onto the class page for you to complete at home. This week's homework is below.
