Year 4 Home Learning

Good morning Year 4, we hope you all had a lovely, restful half term. We have faced many changes and challenges this term yet you have all faced them with such courage and determination. While I expect we will still have some more challenges to come, we know you will take these in your stride and we will continue to support and encourage each other. We miss you all! Xx
