Year 4

Week Starting 17 May 2020

Hello Year 4,

Welcome to another week of home learning.  It has been lovely talking to some of you each day and hearing how you are all getting on.  Remember – we will be continuing to phone some families each day.   We look forward to catching up with you.  If you see a call that says ‘No caller ID’ between 10AM and 4PM then that may well be your teacher.

We have been really pleased to see how hard you are working on your home learning and really enjoyed seeing the examples you posted on to the blogs or that you have emailed to us.  You can send a photo of you and your work to yr4@pegasusacademytrust.org.  Remember – we would also love to hear how you are and to see some of your amazing work on our class blogs which you can access here.

Here are some wonderful examples of home learning from last week.
