My name is Mrs Gray.
I have been a teacher for 9 years now. I went to Northumbria University and my first teaching job was at Burnopfield Primary. I have taught in year 3,4 and 5 during my time in school.
I LOVE teaching year four. We learn lots of new things and have some of my favourite topics. In topic, we find out about The Anglo Saxons and Vikings as well as the amazing Egyptians. In science, you will find out about electricity, the human body and sound. In Art, we learn about Claude Monet. We also read some amazing books and tackle some new topics in maths..having lots of fun along the way.
I am in charge of PE across the whole school so I love to hear about all of your sporting achievements inside and outside of school. I really enjoy teaching PE-it is one of my favourite subjects to teach. I have a keen interest in football, I look after the school football team and enjoy watching football outside of school. I have a season ticket for Sunderland and have been to more or less every game since I was 8 years old.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I have a four year old cocker spaniel called Paisley who you will hear a lot about during the year. I always have a tale to tell about what she gets up to, which is usually pinching socks!!
I absolutely love walking. Going out for long walks is one of my favourite things to do-whatever the weather. Paisley is always with me and she enjoys going to the beach the most. I have recently started to climb some well known peaks in the Lakes and like to set myself new challenges.
One thing you will also learn about me pretty quickly is how much I love all things Disney. You will be able to spot lots of different Disney items around my classroom-from my water bottle, to bags, to notebooks.
Hey, I’m Mr. Gray, and welcome to Year 4. We have lots of fun in Year 4 and it is my favourite year to teach (Ssshhh… don’t tell the other year groups.)
What we’ll be doing in Year 4:
There’s so many amazing and exciting topics that we cover in Year 4! First, step into my classroom and travel back to the Ancient Egyptians, the time when pharaohs were phoul, servants suffered and everyone believed in an awesome afterlife. As well as travelling back to the Ancient Egyptians, we also delve into the world of the Vikings, where we make our own viking clothes and have a viking fashion show! If you’re a foodie, you’ll love learning about Paris as we sample a range of French food. If that’s not enough, we also learn so many interesting facts about the human body, sound and electricity in our science lessons too.
A little bit about me:
Outside of school, I spend lots of time with my little puppy, Luna. If she’s not lying on the sofa with me, you’ll probably find us out on a walk at the coast.
One of my passions is photography. I like to take my camera with me to take pictures of landscapes when I’m hiking and travelling. Last year, I ran a photography club in school for Yr 4,5 and 6. Hopefully I’ll be able to see at another photography club session in the future.
