Year Four (Badgers) Remote Learning

CONTACT MR TIFFANY AND MISS BETHELL

We hope you are all safe and well. We miss you all very much and know that you are going to make us very proud with how hard  you are going to work at home, just like you do at school.  Show us how independent and mature you can be by trying your very best with the work we add to our website.

We’d love to see or hear what you’ve been up to. You can e-mail us at ed.tiffany@worthvalleyprimary.co.uk with your comments or photos of your learning. If you have any issues with the remote learning then please e-mail us or telephone the school.

HOME LEARNING TIPS

Work in small chunks, having plenty of breaks for exercise and water.

If you cannot access much of the work online, then please continue with your reading, times tables, counting skills and writing. Anything is better than nothing to keep your brain growing!

We would be really impressed if you learnt other new facts and skills too…especially in topic areas such as Art, Music, Geography, History and Science. So wow Miss Bethell and I with some amazing new learning!
