Year 4 2023 - 2024
Mrs Williams 3/4LW
Hello, I am Mrs Williams. I have worked at Woodlands for 17 years, I think I'm part of the fixtures and fittings now! I have worked across Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, and am currently Early Years and Phonics Lead in school. I am extremely passionate about Early Years Education and believe that firm foundations and learning through play are the keys to instilling a life long love of learning in our youngest children.
I have 2 daughters aged 9 and 5 who constantly keep me busy! We love to spend time together as a family exploring in the woods, going to the park or the beach or simply visiting Grandparents and Great-Grandparents. We also love reading, crafty activities (who doesn't love a bit of glitter?) and going shopping!
Mrs O'Hara 4RO
Hi! I am Mrs O’Hara and I have been working at Woodlands Primary School for ten years now. After a while teaching in Upper Key Stage Two, I am excited to be back in Year 4. In school, I mentor University students who want to become teachers and also support Early Career Teachers through their new journey. I have lots of exciting topics ready for you to learn this year including, ‘Ancient Egypt’ and ‘Stone Age.’ I also enjoy reading and history as these were my favourite subjects when I was at school.
When I am not in school, I am usually reading a good book on my kindle with a coffee and cake, running around after my three lovely nephews or doing some shopping at Cheshire Oaks! I also like to spend as much time as I can visiting my family and friends.
I am very excited to be your Year 4 teacher and cannot wait to have lots of fun learning together and helping you to blossom into the best you can be!
Hello! I am Miss Woodland and I have recently spent time in Woodlands Primary school teaching in Year 3/4 and Year 1/2.
I am going to be your new Year 4 teacher and I cannot wait! I know we will have lots of fun whilst learning new and exciting things. I have two favourite subjects and they are Maths and Art. I love being creative and learning new techniques in Art, but I also love to problem solve in Maths. I am really excited to watch you grow throughout the year and be part of your year 4 journey. I am especially excited for the residential and seeing what adventures we find.
When I am not in school you will find me out and about with my daughter Isabelle, who is also going into Year 4 in a different school. We love to go on days out to the beach and explore in our local woods with our dog, Smithy. Going to Parkgate in the evening for chips and ice cream is something we do when we want to relax together because who doesn’t like chips and ice cream?!
I cannot wait for a fun-filled year with you and to get to know all of your hopes and dreams.
Let’s create new, exciting memories together.
Welcome to Y4!
