Welcome to Class 3/4!
Welcome to Class 3/4. Your child’s teachers are Miss Pearson, Mr Nicholson and Miss Parkin. Our class teaching assistant is Mrs Thomas. Miss Pearson will be your child’s class teacher from Monday through to Wednesday lunchtime and then Mr Nicholson/ Miss Parkin will be the class teacher from Wednesday afternoon onwards. Mrs Thomas will be in class all week to help support with learning and run any interventions that we feel your child may benefit from. We are extremely proud of our team and we are looking forward to your child joining our class.
The school day starts at 8:45am and learning starts immediately after so it is vital that your child arrives on time. The school day ends at 3:05pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the door that leads onto the bottom yard.
Meet your Teachers
Hello! My name is Miss Parkin. I have been teaching at Thrybergh Primary School for five years now and I love our school! However, you might have forgotten about me or you may have never met me before if you are new to our school because I have recently been taking some time off to look after my baby boy who was born in November 2019. He is growing really fast and is trying hard to crawl at the moment so he’s keeping me very busy! He loves going swimming and can even swim underwater! We enjoy going on walks together, playing peek-a-boo and singing songs. One of his favourite songs is Baby Shark!
My favourite children’s author is Julia Donaldson. I love the story Room On the Broom! I can’t wait to share some of my favourite stories with you in September and find out what books you all like to read. I am looking forward to coming back to school and can’t wait to meet you! We’re going to have lots of fun learning together.
Year 3/4 Teacher
Hello! My name is Miss Pearson and I’m your class teacher alongside Mr Nicholson/ Miss Parkin. I thought I’d write a little bit to introduce myself. I’ve been a teacher for around 12 years now and I absolutely love watching you all grow and learn. When I’m not at school, I’m at home with my daughter Ava and step-daughter Paris. Ava is six years old and very bossy! Paris is eighteen years old. I also have a dog, he is a two year old Patterdale Terrier called Dave- I really enjoy taking him on long walks and snuggling up on the sofa with him. I love spending time with my family and cooking lots of tasty meals for them- my favourite meal is lasange and garlic bread! My favourite season is winter because I love it when it snows and I absolutely adore Christmas and decorating my house with lots of sparkly lights. I am so excited to be your teacher and I cannot wait to do lots of wonderful learning with you all. Miss Pearson x
Year 3/4 Teacher
Hello! My name is Mr Nicholson and I am excited to be teaching you this half term.
I care passionately about Primary Education and making sure children get the very best start in school. I can say this as a father of two children and as a professional who has worked within the education system for the past 24 years in several schools across the Sheffield and Rotherham regions.
I loved working closely with the children and staff across Thrybergh and Foljambe schools during the summer and I was delighted to return for the first part of the Autumn term.
Year 3/4 Teacher
Hi everyone, Mrs Thomas here! I cant wait to see you all in September. Here is a little bit of information about myself- I love spending time with my family and walking my two dogs Toby and Charlie. I love taking my grandsons out and having them come over to my house for sleepovers. As a family we all love watching football. We’re massive Rotherham United fans and love going to New York stadium to watch them play. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and I cannot wait to find out your hobbies and interests.
Our New Learning
We have an exciting curriculum planned and the children will be taught exciting lessons which will enable them to become geographers, historians, scientists to name just a few. We have planned some wonderful learning opportunities for the children and will hopefully be able to take part in some exciting class visits to further support our learning back at school.
Our PE days are every Monday and Thursday.
Please ensure that they come dressed in their kits on both of these days.
Homework – Homework is handed out every Friday (when possible) . Please ensure that you do your homework at home as it ensures that you get extra practice. It’s so important! Homework will consist of spellings, reading and timetable practice using TT-Rockstars. Children will also have a termly topic project to complete which hopefully will encourage them to be imaginative and creative.
Reading – We encourage your child to read at least 10 minutes a day.
