Welcome to Year 4!
New lessons on BBC Bitesize:
From 20th April, you’ll be able to access regular daily lessons in English and Maths, as well as other core subjects, on the BBC website and also on special programmes broadcast on BBC iPlayer and BBC Red Button.
If you use the link above, you can already see some of the activities (and teaching to go with it) that the BBC are providing. As teachers, we will be exploring what the BBC have to offer at the same time as you.
As well as or instead of the current English and Maths activities which have been set, we are recommending that you investigate the daily lessons and activities that the BBC are providing.
