Inspiring Exciting Futures

Learning from home

Welcome to the Year 4 Learning from home page.

On Monday 11th January we will be going live on teams at 9am. Please join us there.  If you are unsure how to login please email us on teachers@underwoodwest.cheshire.sch.uk

Each week we will post the timetable of learning onto this page so you know what is coming next.  Remember to give yourself a break from the screen during lunch and break times. There are lots of ways you can learn without one, for example reading a book or doing some baking, drawing a picture, playing in the garden ( If it's not too cold!), going for a walk or playing a board game with a family member.
