Y3/4 - Mrs Collins 2023 - 2024

Mrs Collins


Hello, my name is Mrs Collins and I teach in Year 3/4 with the support of Mrs Thomas. I joined Northway back in 2010 and have taught across all of KS2. I’m responsible for leading Computing and eSafety at our school and run our Northway Digital Leaders who promote and raise the profile of eSafety and Computing across the school.  

We share lots of our fun learning on the school twitter account each week. Please make sure you follow us on: @northwaymaghull

Food and drink

Every child should have a water bottle that they can access at any time during the day. This bottle should be in addition to a lunch time drink, if they are on packed lunches.

Your child may bring a nut free healthy snack for morning play. Please ensure that the snack is in their book bag so that they do not have to find it in their lunch bags.

Healthy snack

  • Fruit
  • Bread or toast.

We have children with anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition that is caused by a severe allergic reaction to nuts. We ask you to help us protect these children by sending snacks for your child that do not contain nuts. Thank you for your cooperation with this; it is very much appreciated by the families of the children. 

Year 3/4 PE

PE lessons will usually take place on a Thursday 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. Earrings must be removed for the lesson or covered by plasters provided from home. 


This half-term your child will not be bringing a spelling list home to learn. We will continue to work on the Year 3 and 4 common exception words in class but they will not be tested on them weekly. A copy of these ican be found on their class page of the website.  Please encourage your child to complete some weekly spelling practise by accessing Doodle Spell.


Please read with your child, regardless of their ability, at least twice per week and sign their home-reading record. 

To quiz on a 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: 


Water bottles

Please bring a clear, named reusable water bottle to school everyday, it should have a sports cap type lid.
