Dear parents/carers and children,

Welcome back!  I hope you have all had a fun-filled Summer are now recharged and ready for a new school year! We have lots planned in Year 4, with many exciting activities based around our first topic, Blue Abyss.





Miss Turner - Class teacher

I am now in my 4th year of teaching and my 2nd year at Hatfield Woodhouse. I am leader of PE and Geography at the school and love to engage and motivate as many children as possible in sporting activities. Pe is my specialist subject! I love to play football for my local team and have played football since I was 9 years old. I also try to participate in as many different sports as I can, including badminton and squash. When I'm not working, I love to be outdoors, going for walks, watching films at the cinema and spending time with my family and friends. I have two cocker spaniels, who I love to walk at the beach and train to run agility courses.
