Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!
 
Our teacher is Miss Chazot.
 
This is Miss Chazot's second year at King Street and she's looking forward to another wonderful year! Miss Chazot was born in the south of England but has spent most of her life in the north east. She loves science and studied zoology at university before training to be a teacher. She loves sharing her passion for science and the rest of the curriculum with her pupils and making learning as fun and as engaging as possible!
 
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Stiles.
 
 
This term, PE lessons will be on Tuesday afternoons and we will continue with our swimming lessons on Wednesday mornings. PE kit should consist of: black shorts, trainers and a change of top (preferably a school t-shirt in house colours). We do lots of PE outdoors, so you may also like to provide jogging bottoms for colder days. Long hair should be tied back and earrings taken out or covered for PE days. Swimming lessons will require the same kit as last year- a costume, towel and swimming hat. PE lessons will be taught by Mr Swift.
Our learning
 
This year, we have an exciting topic-based curriculum planned. We will be learning about our topics throughout the curriculum and thinking of our own questions to answer.
 
Our first topic is 'Ancient Greece'. We will be learning about key events from this time period and the culture and achievements of the ancient Greeks. We will investigate this topic across the curriculum, studying the art, music, geography and religious beliefs of these ancient people.
 
 
Our first science topic is 'Animals, including humans'. We will be learning about how the digestive system works, our different types of teeth (and those of other animals) and how energy is transferred in food chains.
 
Next half term, we will move on to investigate 'States of Matter' and learn about solids, liquids and gases and the factors which cause materials to change state. 
 
As much as possible, science will be taught practically, allowing us to ask and answer our own questions and gain a greater awareness of how scientists work.
