Y3/4 - Mrs O'Connor 2021 - 2022

Mrs O'Connor


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.

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.

Year 3/4 PE

PE lessons will usually take place on a Tuesday but please make sure your PE kit is in school at the beginning of every half term and stays in school. ALL pieces of clothing, including school uniform and shoes MUST be named. 


Each Tuesday you will be given a list of spellings to learn ready for a test on the following Tuesday. We will give you lots of tips on how to practise these at home.
