So we're into week 2, which would be the last week of half term. I've been busy the last couple of days sorting out this weeks home activities. I have enjoyed finding some great tasks for you to do next week.
Remember - You can just pick the activities you would like to do or use the routine idea if you wish to. It's completely up to you. If you've found some other Roman project ideas or art activities or PE you enjoy - do those instead! If you wish to write a diary of your own time and the things you have done with your family - write that instead. Please ensure you have plenty of time to be with your family and try new things together. These tasks are aimed to give you some focus or structure and help you adapt, but please do not stress about getting them all done.
- For maths - there is a link which will take you to a video which explains the lesson and the follow up sheet is below (answers found on site for parents too!) YEAR 4 - USE WEEK 2 !!
I've also found a lot of cool things to do over the Easter break if you wish to (we are not setting 'work' like we have been over the holiday, so these will be things to fill the time if you wish to). These include: nature activities, Easter crafts, Minecraft ideas, POKEMON ideas, Easter maths, and more!
