Hi Year 4, I hope you had a lovely week last week.
This week (week beginning 25th May 2020) it's half term so I won't be setting the usual English, Maths and afternoon sessions - you've earned yourself a break! I've added a range of activities for you to have a go at but there's no requirement to complete any of the activities this week - it's up to you what you choose to do!
There are some mindfulness activities to get on with as it's important during this time that we look after ourselves. It can sometimes feel very uncertain and worrying when life is a bit different and when our routines aren't what they usually are so you really need to look after yourselves and remember to talk about how you're feeling. These activities can be quite calming and might help you to relax or take your mind of any worries you might have.
There are also some creative activities to have a go at including some science experiments and arty activities to get stuck into and I've added some other activities like dance and P.E to have a look at too.
I've added a timetable below to give a bit of structure if that's helpful to you but feel free to create your own using the activities I've added below, you don't need to follow any order and you're welcome to skip any activities you don't fancy doing. I've added some extra activities that aren't included on the timetable too so just check below to find those. I've added some website links to some Top Marks games and Science experiments below the videos so remember to scroll all the way to the bottom to find those! I've also linked Bitesize who do daily lessons on lots of different subjects if you wanted to maintain your routine and keep up with some learning.
Have a wonderful half term, I'd love you to send over any of the activities you completed - I'd be happy to add them to the gallery page we've created. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
