(Spring 1) Home Learning week 1 – January 5th

Welcome to Year 3 and 4 Home Learning – Spring 1

We really enjoyed our Hook Day learning in school on Monday and are saddened that school is closed to most children for the next few weeks.

You will find all of the resources that you need for home learning here. Please follow the links to find the documents, complete the work on paper or on a computer and then upload the document or a photo to your class dojo portfolio or to your google classroom. You can also email it to any of the Year 3 and 4 staff.

Should you require any help with the home learning, please do not hesitate to contact us on dojo, google classroom or by email. We will support you in any way that we can.

We will look forward to seeing all of your work!
