Year 4 - Tigers

Please be assured that our daily updates are simply a suggestion and we do not want you to worry about whether everything is completed every day. We want the resources and ideas to be helpful and not a hindrance. The work can be completed at any time. Additionally, if your child finds any of the learning from home tasks too challenging, please feel free to take a look at another class page. At this unusual time, our main priority is that our children and families are happy and healthy.

Learning From Home

Our aim, during this difficult time is to keep children at MPL thinking hard, gaining knowledge and honing their skills. It is important to help them maintain a routine and retain positive mental and physical health. We must strive to provide a consistent, positive point of contact in what will be a very unsettling time for many children. Please check this page daily for new learning from home activities.
