Panda Class - Year 4

Hello Panda Class!

We've made a great start to the term. It has been wonderful to see your smiling faces when you come into the classroom! You've settled in brilliantly. I can't wait for what is in store for the rest of the year.

Miss Neill.


Term 1

Please ensure you have read, signed and returned the new home school agreement and positive behaviour policy.

All the information you need for Panda Class is in our newsletter.

Other important information is highlighted below.


Reading Books

Each child will be given 1 or 2 books to take home and read on a Monday. Books bags should be brought into school on a Friday to enable us to quarantine any books before resending them out the following week. This will enable the rereading of books to develop fluency and comprehension and will enable us to manage any risks associated with Covid-19. When reading with an adult in school, we will be using school books and keeping a separate reading record. Children therefore only need to bring their book bags to school on a Friday.

Spelling Homework

Every child will be given a Homework Book. Spellings are set each week and will be tested every FRIDAY. Any spelling homework should be completed with the learning book being returned to school in the book bag. I will be awarding house points for any spelling homework that has been completed.

Times Tables Rockstars

Times table rockstars has now been updated so that the children have the appopriate times tables set for them. Please could your children try to do this 3 times a week. We are also having weekly times table lessons to help us practice with a termly times table test. We are preparing for the national times tables test in the summer term.


PE will take place on a Wednesday and Friday and will take place outside whenever possible. Please send your child to school in their PE kits on these days. They will wear their PE clothes all day. In line with school policy, earrings must be removed for PE lessons.
