20th May 2020 

Dear Children and parents,

We hope you are all well.

Just to clarify, you don't need to get all the tasks done that we are putting on the website. We will continue to update your target work for English, Maths, Spellings and Reading. If you have been following the Twinkl daily lessons or BBC bitesize daily, that's fine too!

Try to make yourself a little time table for each day to help you structure your home learning. We would like you to do TT Rockstars, Spellings and Reading each day. Don't forget to include fun activities in your time table such as Science experiments/ Art and crafts/ D & T. 

For your resources for English and Maths, we will try putting the links directly under the tasks. Additional resources will be at the bottom of the page in the resources section. THE NEWEST RESOURCES WILL NOW BE AT THE TOP!

We will also leave older resources on for a little while in case you haven't had a chance to access them. They will be further towards the bottom of the page. 


From Miss Devonshire and Mrs Reynolds

Children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts by the end of Year 4. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp. Please click on the logo to access the website.

The children should be reading every day. We would recommend two sessions of around 20 minutes each. Please listen to them read out-loud as often as possible and discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.

Also, Wirral libraries are offering access to e-books even if you don't have a library card.
