Red Pandas Newsletter Spring 2021

Welcome to Red Pandas!

We are the awesome Year 3 and Year 4 class at Poolsbrook Primary. We are working hard to build our resilience in the face of challenges and always try our best to follow our Poolsbrook Pride rules, making our classroom a warm, welcoming and exciting place to learn. We know that no matter what challenges we face, we can get through them together!


Please take some time to have a look round, see what we have been learning and help us to celebrate all our learning and achievements.

Our Learning

This half term our ‘Big Idea’ is Wonder. We will be learning all about the Moon, by studying what different cultures believed about the moon in the past, how our ideas and understanding changed over time, right through to the scientific developments of the 20th century and humankind’s first steps on the moon.

We will also be learning about a range of scientists and inventors from across history, and how their wonderous discoveries changed the way we live.


In English we will be using our Talk for writing approach to learn about and write our own adventure stories. Later on in the term we will also be learning about, writing and performing poetry. We will continue to develop our love of reading by reading widely across the curriculum, getting the chance to experience a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction texts.


In Maths we will be continuing to learn about multiplication and division, then we will focus on length, perimeter and area.
