Year 4


 Welcome to Year 4. 

The Year 4 team are Mrs Tuck, Miss Babbage and Mrs Mitchell

Dear Year 4,

Unfortunately we are all now working from home until December 8th.

You should have all been emailed information about logging on to Teams. 

There will be two daily Team sessions from myself (Mrs Tuck) starting form Monday 30th November at 10 am and 2.45pm. The morning session will last for 45 minutes and the afternoon session is to have story time and show the work you have completed that day. You can also email your work to me too.

The aim is that in the morning I will either complete a Maths session or English session with you and then you will have time to complete it through out the day. 

I will also post links on here for any websites you can use for your learning too.

Any problems, please email the year 4 email address below.



 Here is our class wishlist on Amazon.
