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 summer term is 'Invaders and Settlers'. Through this topic, we will learn about the different groups of people who have invaded and settled in Britain, focussing on the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We will work as historians, artists, geographers and use a vast variety of skills to investigate our topic, to gain a deep understanding of this historical period.
 
 
 
In Science, we will begin by learning about the properties of electricity. We will construct our own circuits and investigate conductors and insulators through a number of practical experiments.
 
We will then move on to learn about 'Sound' and gain an understanding of how sound is created, how it travels and how it can be modified.
 
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.
