Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!
Our teacher is Miss Bell
This is my eighth 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.  My passions are reading, history and the natural world, but I love teaching every subject; this is truly the best job in the world. I came back into Year 4 after having my little girl, Ivy, and I am also the Deputy Head.  
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Bott
This is Mrs Bott's fifth year at King Street as a TA, and she is very excited to be working with Year 4; she has already worked with lots of you, or your big brothers and sisters, when she was working in Year 1 and Year 6.  Mrs Bott is very creative and organised, and will be an amazing support to you all.
We are also supported in class by Miss Navin, who works across Years 3 and 4.  
Home Learning
Our new 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 are to be completed at least three times a week - you can bring your book back at any other time  if you need to change it.  Regular reading has a huge impact on your current and future learning, so every minute counts!
World Book Day 2023

We love reading here at King Street, and enjoy sharing this across the whole school and wider community (as well as dressing up)!
Our learning
This year, we have an exciting curriculum planned. We will be learning across and throughout every curriculum subject, making links between areas of learning, thinking of our own questions to answer, reading widely, and building our vocabulary every day.  We will particularly be finding lots of opportunities to read about and discuss our different areas of enquiry.
Our new theme in Year 4 starting in the Spring term is 'Climate Change', in which we will be developing our skills in geography, science, debate and many more areas!  Through this topic, we will be learning more about the world (including using maps, atlases and grid references, and putting these into practice through Outdoor Education), reading a number of books linked to the crisis our planet is facing (including 'The Last Bear'), writing to politicians to persuade them of the importance of acting now, and becoming experts in endangered species - and how to protect them!  I know how passionate Year 4 are about the world around them, and I have high expectations for the brilliant learning which will be taking place over the coming months!
In November, we had a great day at Arbeia, applying our archaeological skills and finding more evidence of how the Romans shaped our local area almost 2,000 years ago...
