Y3 - Mrs Shimmin & Mr Tomkinson 2020 - 2021

Mrs Shimmin

Mrs Shimmin


Hello, my name is Mrs Shimmin and I teach in Year 3. I have been lucky enough to teach at Northway since 2007 and love being a part of the Lower Junior team. I will be teaching in Year 3 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I have taught in other year groups as well but being able to support children with the transtion from infants to juniors is something I thoroughly enjoy

Hi, my name is Mr Tomkinson and I am covering Mrs Collins' maternity leave. This means that I teach Year 3 on Thursdays and Fridays but will be in school full-time providing junior PPA cover. Before moving to Merseyside, I spent 5 years teaching across Key Stage 2 in Hertfordshire and I thoroughly enjoyed teaching Year 5/6 last year.

Year 3 2020/21

Hello to all of the Year 3 children who be in our class.

Have a look at our 'Welcome to Year 3!' video to remind yourself of our new classroom.
