Good morning Year 4.

It has been really good to see so many of you completing the tasks that have been set online for you – please let this continue year 4. 

We are going to continue to add tasks and resources to this webpage and to Purple Mash so we need you to keep looking at the pages to make sure that you see the new things that we want you to do.
