Welcome to Year 3
Hello and welcome to Year 3!
There is always something exciting happening in Class 6 from travelling back in time to The Stone Age to exploding volcanoes! Every day we learn something new, that includes the teachers, and we enjoy the challenges of each new day. Our Year 3 teacher is Mrs Burkill and she is supported by Mrs Guy.
Hello! I’m Mrs. Burkill (newly married!) and I’m so thrilled to be teaching your children at Etherley Lane Primary School. I’ve been a teacher here for five years, and I was a pupil here myself, so it’s an honour to now be teaching!
I am currently the PSHCE subject leader and have helped develop our Educate and Celebrate ethos across the school. I also lead the School Council and Eco Warriors. Children are elected by their class mates and attend meetings to discuss issues that concern the children and ways to improve and develop our school community.
I studied English Language at Northumbria University and then completed a PGCE in Primary Education. I am passionate about giving children exciting opportunities to learn and develop in a stimulating, innovative environment.
In my spare time, I love to travel and visit new places. I enjoy eating the local cuisine and exploring new cities. I am passionate about fashion and enjoy shopping! I also enjoy reading, when time allows, and I have a pet turtle called Herbie.
