Y3 - Mrs Shimmin & Mrs Collins 2020 - 2021

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 transition from infants to juniors is something I thoroughly enjoy

Hello, my name is Mrs Collins and I teach in Year 3 alongside Mrs Shimmin. I have just returned from maternity leave and will be working on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. I joined Northway back in 2010 and have taught across all of KS2. I’m responsible for Rights Respecting Schools at Northway and I was really proud when we achieved our Gold Award a few years ago – the highest level of award!

We're really looking forward to welcoming you back in September. When coming into school, remember to walk down the pedestrian path, cross at the zebra crossing and wave goodbye as you walk down to path and onto the Junior playground. Here is a short video that will help you with how to walk into school. 



Contacting the class teacher

Due to social distancing restrictions and school closure, teachers are unable to meet face to face unless meetings have been scheduled. Please use the class emails if you wish to contact the class teacher. If your concern is imminent, please contact the school office and they will pass the message on to the class teacher.

Please read with your child, regardless of their ability, at least twice per week and sign their home-reading record. Your child will need their reading book each day as we have Accelerated Reading sessions everyday.

Children have access to an online library of books at their current ZPD: 


Children have their username and login in their reading record. They can use MyOn to quiz on books they have read online.  

To quiz on their school reading book, use our school’s AR site: 


Children can also check if a book they have read from home has a quiz attached to it using the following website: 


Some children (though not all) may also have log ins for these accounts:
