Aiming High in all we do!

Year 3

Autumn Term 2018

 Hi, my name is Mrs Joannou and I have been at Almond Hill for 16 years and this is my fourth year of teaching in Year 3. I am the Assistant Head and I am responsible for Maths across the school. I love teaching all subjects but maths is my favourite! I am looking forward to getting to know all the new Year 3 children joining us this year. 

 Hello, I am Miss Porter and this is my second year at Almond Hill and in Year 3. I am responsible for History across the school and I love teaching all topic lessons, particularly Geography. This year, I am really looking forward to running the Golden Mile with my new class. 

 Hi, I am Mrs Osborne and this is my first full year at Almond Hill and my first year in Year 3 at this school. My favourite subject is Science, so I can’t wait to get started teaching the science topics! I am looking forward to lots of excellent learning in Year 3, but having some fun along the way. 

 Bonjour! I am Mr Daly, this is my fourth year at Almond Hill and perhaps my most exciting to date. In addition to my gardening lessons, encouraging many children to grow fruit and vegetables and teaching French across all year groups, I am now Class Teacher for 3J each Friday. 

Mrs Barker, Mrs Pridmore and Mrs Lamacraft are Teaching Assistants who will support us in our learning this year.



Year 3 'Circus Skills'


January 2019 - Spring Writing Project.

October 2018

      Year Three have done some great learning this month and are fully settled in to their brand new school. We were fortunate enough to visit our local church, St Nicholas Church, to help our learning in RE.  

The children went on their visit in their new classes and each class learnt something different. The focus of the visit was the signs and symbols in Christian places of worship, and we got given a tour and talk by John who is a member of the church. The children had a fantastic visit and the year three teachers really feel like this has really helped their understanding in RE.

September 2018

Year Three have had a very busy few weeks settling into their new classes.  We have continued the English work we started in July and have been writing adventure stories about Traction Man.  Traction Man went on lots of adventures, saving characters from different ‘Kitchen Enemies’! 

In Art, we have been practising our pencil skills by drawing and refining self-portraits.   We then learned about abstract art and collage and had a go ourselves.  

We have enjoyed getting into the routine of completing the Golden Mile and running or walking laps of the school field – we know we’re getting fitter as we’re getting more laps done!

The teachers would like to encourage the children to carry on playing TT Rockstars regularly on a laptop or tablet at home.  If your child has not yet got a login for this site, please see a member of the Year 3 team as soon as possible.

In the meantime, if you wish your child to have access to some maths games, please use the link below.  ‘Number bonds’ and ‘times tables’ are particularly good areas to practise.
