4th – 7th May
Dear 4P and 4S,
Welcome to week 3 of the Summer term. It was great to speak to parents and carers from Year 4 last week and to hear how you have all been coping during these difficult times.
While Google Classroom is not ready to use, you can still find work for the week here. Remember, it is a Bank Holiday on Friday, so we have only provided work up until Thursday.
Keep happy and stay safe. Hopefully we will see each other again very soon.
Miss Scott and Mr Power
Parents/Carers: Please refer to the advice from Mrs McNicolas: “Do what works for your family and your situation and try not to worry.”
You are also hopefully keeping up with your diary writing! Remember this is a historical and interesting time – just like how we now read diary entries from Victorian times or WW2, people will want to look back on the experiences of children during this time! Here are some guidelines for writing a diary entry: Writing – Diary Entries
