Y3/4 - Mrs O'Connor 2021 - 2022

Mrs O'Connor

Welcome 

My name is Mrs O'Connor and I teach Year 3/4 with support from Mrs Handley. I have been teaching since 2007 and have taught at schools in Sefton and Liverpool before I joined the fantastic Northway team in 2016. I have an undergraduate degree in French and a PGCE in Primary Education. When I'm not in school, I enjoy taking my dog, Charlie, for long walks on the beach. Alongside Mrs Reardon, I am responsible for leading Maths across our 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.

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.
