Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!
 
Our teacher is Miss Bell
 
This is my seventh year at King Street Primary, and I have a sneaking suspicion that it's going to be the best one yet!  After teaching in London for almost a decade, I moved back North to be closer to my family; and after 8 years teaching Year 6, I feel so lucky to have a new challenge!  I've came back into Year 4 last year after having my little girl, Ivy, and I am also the Deputy Head.
 
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Scott
 
This is also Mrs Scott's seventh year at King Street and she is very excited to be working with Year 4; she has already worked with lots of you over the years when she was working in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, as well as in after-school club.  
 
We are also supported in class by Mr Swift and Miss Navin.
Our learning
 
This year, we have an exciting topic-based curriculum planned. We will be learning about our topics throughout every curriculum subject and thinking of our own questions to answer.  We will particularly be finding lots of opportunities to read about and discuss our different areas of enquiry.
 
Our first main theme in Year 4 starting in the Autumn term will be 'Invaders and Settlers', in which we will be learning all about how Britain changed from 43AD (the invasion of the Romans) to 1066AD, including how the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings left their marks too! This is a fascinating area of learning, with so many different local links we can make - from Hadrian's Wall, to Lindisfarne.  We will work as historians, archaeologists, journalists, detectives, scientists, artists, geographers, engineers and so much more!  We will learn and use a vast variety of skills to investigate and gain a deep understanding of how this period of time changed our country forever! 
 
 
Home Learning
 
Our new spellings and any other homework is set on a Monday, and is due to be returned/handed in by Friday.  This can sometimes be set online so make sure you have your login details.
 
Reading books need to be returned AT LEAST once a week, on Mondays - you can bring your book back at any other time too if you need to change.  Reading records should also be returned on Mondays, and should be signed at least three times a week.
