Welcome to Year 3 and 4
This year we have two Year 3 classes, a split 3/4 class and two Year 4 classes:
Hello I am Mrs Tobin, I teach 3T. They are a lovely bunch of children who like to sing and dance - especially to Justin Timberlake! We have two very special members of the class who are only 12 weeks old - they are Batman and Robin and they are hamsters. Come and see them at a lunch time.
We have Miss Chapman, Miss Khan and Miss Wright as TA who work very hard. I am the short teacher, with purple, blue and sometimes green hair. I love Minions, Harry Potter and lots and lots of cups of tea! I love cooking and baking and can be found Wednesday after school in the KS1 dinning hall. I will also be holding another Harry Potter evening and will be sending the details out soon!
Hi, We are Ms Khan and Mrs Spencer. Welcome to 4KS. We are delighted to have Miss Kent as our wonderful Teaching Assistant this year. Pop along and say Hello! as the classroom door is always open.
