Year 3 2020 - 2021

Mrs Taylor

I am proud to be part of our school, and I am very much looking forward to working with year 3 this year!

I gained a first class teaching degree with English literature and Q.T.S. in 2014 at Liverpool Hope University, where I had trained for four years before qualifying. Prior to this, I taught dance and drama on the Wirral which gave me seven years of vocational teaching experience. I have worked in years 2 - 6 during my time at Westminster and enjoy them all for different reasons!

In my spare time, I like to see family & friends, read and play on the beach with my son.

Mrs Farrall

I enjoy working with this class of children and looking forward to seeing what they achieve in Year 3. I'm also part of the school PTA and enjoy helping out at the school events.

In my spare time I love spending time with my family.

Miss Nana

I am excited about working with the children in Year 3 this year and will be helping them with their learning each morning.

Welcome to Year 3


Hello to all our year 3 children and families!

We hope you all are well, and we are so glad to be back with you. We are excited to be working with you this year, and we have a lovely term lined up!

If you need anything at all, just ask.

Mrs Taylor, Mrs Farrall and Mrs Nana

Returning to school


We all need to stay safe when we return to school; it is worth sharing the following with your child in order to prepare them:

- Children will be asked to wash their hands frequently

- Children will need to line up leaving gaps between each other

- Children will be provided with their own pencil case and resources (they cannot share these)

- Children will work at spaced out desks, keeping gaps between pupils (please prepare your children for this, they are used to working around collaborative tables, so this will feel different - please also prepare them that they need to stay in their own seat/area).

Mrs Farrall, Mrs Nana and I will work with your children to help keep our team safe whilst learning and having as much fun as we would usually.  We are excited to see you!
