Panda Class - Year 4

Hello Panda Class!

My name is Miss Neill and I am class teacher for Year 4. Mrs Rumming is our Teaching Assistant. If you need to get in touch with me, please email year4@st-edmunds-pri.wilts.sch.uk . I will also update you on class information through our Class Dojo page.

Miss Neill.


Term 4

This term we will be developing our geography skills as we learn about Great Britain. In Science we will start to learn about plants and will be watching a variety of different seeds and seedlings grow as we carry out a range of investigations.  In RE we will be reflecting on what the season of Lent means to Christians.

Please note that PE will be taught on Wednesday and Friday this term. Please take a look at the Panda 'What We've Been Up To' page to see some of the learning that has taken place this year.


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.

Knowledge Organisers

Here are the knowledge oragnisers that will help you think about the key information that you will be learning about in science and geography this term.


In French this term we will be learning all about food and drink. Please take a look at the vocabulary list and have a go at home!
