Year 4 Learning Log

Spring 1

 

Home learning activities are an opportunity to work on detailed projects and learn with your adult at home and on your own.  The expectation is that one piece of work is to be completed per week.  This piece of work is the best piece of work that you can do.  Provide detail, explore deeper and be creative!  Remember learning and exploring is fun when you’re part of a team. (Each bullet point is a separate piece of homework)
