Class 3/4

Welcome to Class 3/4!

Your child’s teachers are Miss Pearson 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 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.

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.


Miss Parkin
Year 3/4 Teacher

Hello! My name is Miss Pearson and I’m your class teacher alongside Miss Parkin. I thought I’d write a little bit to introduce myself before September. I’ve been a teacher for around 10 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 five years old and very bossy! Paris is almost seventeen years old. I also have a dog, he is a one-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 lasagne 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 meet you all in September and cannot wait to get to know you all!

Miss Pearson
Year 3/4 Teacher

Hello, my name is Mrs Platts.

I have worked at Thrybergh Primary School for 22 years. I absolutely love my job and as my role of HLTA; I am lucky enough to teach most of the children throughout school. I love watching T.V and reading. I thoroughly enjoy reading Roald Dahl books to the children.

I have three children of my own who are all grown up now. I love spending time with my family especially at Christmas time when we all get together for the day. I enjoy going shopping with my daughter and going out for lunch. I can’t wait for September to see you all again and to meet our new children.


Mrs Platts

Hi everyone, Mrs Thomas here! I can’t 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 can’t wait to find your hobbies and interests.

Our New Learning

Next year our topics will include World War 2, Rainforests and Coasts. 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.

Class Information

The school day starts at 8:45 am and learning starts immediately after so it is vital that your child arrives on time. The school day ends at 3:05 pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the door that leads onto the bottom yard. Please ensure you have both indoor and outdoor PE kits in school every day. Please ensure that children have both an indoor and an outdoor PE kit. We recommend that your child has their PE kit in school all week, just in case we manage to sneak an extra session in!

Homework is handed out every Friday (when possible) and is due in by the following Wednesday. 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.

We encourage your child to read at least 10 minutes a day.
