Bulwell St Mary's Primary and Nursery SchoolWhere Your Journey Begins

YR4 - Pandas

Welcome to Year 4- The Pandas! 


 Our class name this year is the Pandas. Pandas are a threatened species, still just one step away from the classification of endangered. We are a group of hard working and eager learners.  We always support one another on our learning journey!  

We have mastered a wide range of skills during our time at school and are confidently applying them across the curriculum. We are independent learners and are encouraged to be responsible as we discover and practise skills needed for life. We also have plenty of problem-solving opportunities to prepare us for the wider life when we grow up.  

It is expected that each week your child should: 

  • Read at home at least 4 times a week – please remember to sign your child’s reading diary and ensure that the reading book and diary are brought back into school. We love to give out Dojos and reward children who read! 
  • Times Tables practice on TTRS (see useful links)– children will be offered challenges on TTRS – can they beat their teachers’ scores and help their class to win battles against other classes? 
  • Spelling practice, with a test in school on Friday. 
  • Creative homework will be sent out half termly it is linked to our topic- these are lovely activities which you can all get involved with at home and create some wonderful things as a family! 


Our P.E. days are Monday and Wednesday. 

Class Dojo: 

We do update class Dojo frequently and it is a great way of communicating. Please keep checking for messages on there. If you have any concerns or worries please don’t hesitate to get in touch, I am here to support you all as well as your children! 

We are very excited to see what this year holds and even more excited to be working with each and every one of your children!
