Hi Everyone, Hope you are all well. How are you getting on with your learning activities? Any problems let me know through IT's Learning.

The next thing we would have been doing in maths was adding and subtracting fractions. Math Antics man on YouTube has a good video

(Remember to get an adult to check Youtube links for you first)

Watch it and write yourself some notes about how it works and then I will set you some questions .

Adding And Subtracting Fractions

Take care,

Hi Class 4 ,

Here are some things to keep you up to speed with your learning skills while schools are closed. Some you can choose from but can you please do your legend story.

Legend Story

Following on from all the work we have done in the past few weeks about myths and legends , have a go at writing your own quest/mythical legend story.

Use the planners and remember all the elements of good story writing. The story can be set wherever and whenever you like as long as it keeps the elements of a legend/quest.

Can you type it up and send it to me on google mail?

Try and do 10 minutes reading every day. Finish Percy Jackson and write a review. Watch the film of Percy Jackson and write a comparison with the book.

Audible on Amazon have made all their childrens books free to download
