Dear Parents and Carers,

As part of our contingency curriculum, we will be uploading work onto our class pages regularly. 

If your child  has to self-isolate or in an event of a school closure, you can still follow the curriculum online. 

Please visit your child's class page daily to access  videos, worksheets and instructions on daily tasks.

Don't worry, you won't have to print any worksheets, as the answers can be written on a piece of plain paper.

 

Welcome to year 4!

Year 4 2020/2021

Mrs Oluremi and Mrs Adeyemi shake you warmly by the hand! 

We're excited to meet you all and can't wait to embark on our new learning journey together.

The Legend Of Spud Murphy by Eoin Colfer

 

I thought the tales and stories about Spud Murphy were exaggerated or made up but on first impressions she does seem like quite a fierce character. Maybe the boys were right to be reluctant to go to the library and for their sake's let's hope they behave.

The Legend Of Spud Murphy - Chapter 1 Quiz

As our book is quite short, a new quiz will be added for each chapter each week. 

 

I don't blame Will's parents for sending them to the library after all of the mayhem they've caused. I wonder if Mrs Murphy is as dangerous as Marty claims or is he just trying to get out of going to the library?
