Year 4

Remote learning for the week beginning 18th January 2021 

Hello, Year 4! 

Welcome back to another exciting week of virtual learning. We hope you had a relaxing weekend and are ready for this week’s remote learning. We are looking forward to all the fantastic works we will receive from you all.

Maths and English 

In Maths, we will be looking at division; we will start by spending some time recapping dividing 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number. This will focus on sharing and grouping methods. We will then be moving onto 3-digit numbers at the end of the week. 

In English, we start the week by looking main and subordinate clauses. Then we will be looking at the features of a formal letter and writing a persuasive formal letter to the MP regarding plastic pollution in our local community.
