    Dear parents/carers and children,

    Welcome back!  We hope you have had a happy and fun fillled half term holiday and are ready for the work to begin.



Mrs McConachie – HILTA

I am currently in my 10th year at Hatfield Woodhouse. I have supported every class in school but I must say Year 4 is my favourite. I cover PPA in the afternoons across both key Stages and teach Science, which is one my favourite subjects along with English. Along with Mrs Holt I help run the after school Art Club. I have a son, Thomas, who is 17 and in his last year at sixth form. In my spare time I love going to concerts and spending time with my family.







Topics Year 4 will be covering this year









Raiders and Traders


USA Road Trip

In Science, Year 4 have been learning about the digestive system. The children have loved finding out where the food goes inside the body and what different types of teeth we have. One of our experiments was to use utensils to mash, cut and tear four types foods to understand the differrent functions their teeth are used for.                                                        





Important points:


Baking money – please ensure that the £2.00 baking money is sent into class each term.

 Homework/reading folders – each child has been given a homework folder - this should be used to hand homework in.  Reading folder should be brought in daily.

 PE will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Please ensure that your child leaves their kit at school during the week.

 Uniform – Please note that children are expected to wear uniform.  Trainers are not acceptable footwear. Notes will be sent home if there are any issues.




Please feel free to make an appointment if you have any concerns, if not jot a note in your child's reading journal and I will respond.



Many thanks,

Mr Morgan & Mrs McConachie
