Happy Friday Year 4

Good morning year 4, I hope that you are all safe and well. It is now the end of week two away from school, time seems to have gone quickly and I suspect that you all have a good routine at home by now. Today looks like it might be a pleasant day so I hope you are able to get out into the fresh air at some point. I am hoping to go for a walk later on today which will be nice.

I have received lots of fantastic work again, some of which I put onto the class page yesterday, I will put more on later today. It is great to see how creative you are being with your time. I am so happy to see you all keeping busy and taking such care with your work. 

Have a lovely day and a super weekend and take care.

Good morning Year 4,

Happy Thursday! Keep smiling. I have been smiling a lot from looking through your super work. Last night I put some more examples onto the class pages. I hope you get a chance to look at them. I also believe that some of you have been drawing rainbows to put into your windows to cheer up your neighbours. What a lovely thing to do.
