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 be taking part in outdoor education sessions on Thursdays with 'Real Adventure Through Sport'. 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. Our PE topic for this term is 'dance' and we will be taught by a coach, alongside 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 topic for the spring term is 'Saving the Planet'. Through this topic, we will learn about the different biomes of the planet and develop our geographical skills. We will investigate the different factors which damage the environment and develop our appreciation for the living things which share our planet and the ways in which we can help them.
 
 
 
In Science, we will begin by completing the 'States of Matter' topic and learning about solids, liquids and gases and the factors which cause materials to change state. 
 
We will then move on to learn about the environment, habitats and renewable energy as part of our topic, 'Saving the Planet'.
 
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.
