Tuesday 5th May

Hello Year 4,

I hope you all managed to complete some of the work I set yesterday. As always,I would rather give you lots to choose from rather than not enough and you get bored.  Remember to make sure you spread your work out and have time away from screens.

Here are your activities for today - 

Maths =

1.Complete the times table to dos on Purple Mash.

2. 'White Rose Hub Home Learning' using this link -

Using the link above, watch the video and complete the activity for: WEEK 2 LESSON 2 'HUNDREDTHS'  NOT the week beginning 4th May as we need to continue with where we were up to last week. The activity and answers are on the white rose website but I have also put the PDF activity and answers below.

Make sure you follow the lessons in order as they follow on from each other so if you not up to week 2 lesson 2, then complete the lesson that you are up to instead.

Our focus for this weeks Literacy home learning is: 'Performance Poetry'.
