WELCOME TO OUR...

YEAR THREE

Year 3 brings lots of changes for our children and we always look forward to supporting them and ensuring they feel right at home in their first year in the juniors.

We always consider every child’s needs and do our upmost to ensure each child is challenged and supported academically and emotionally. We like to think that we are an open year group and work closely with parents and carers to improve your child’s development and social well-being.

Safety is a main priority in year 3 and we teach the children how to be safe not just in the classroom, but online and within our community which is promoted within our schemes of work. We hope to deliver a rich and creative curriculum that excites and enthuses the children and develops a passion for learning. Our doors are always open.

OUR CURRICULUM

In Year Three, we study a range of exciting topics, such as Paintings and Photographs, The Generation Game, The Rainforest and the Stone Age. We make the learning as interactive as possible, and give the children hands on experiences of different topics. The children are encouraged to carry out their own research, and we carry on our learning through exciting trips and experience days.

In English, we study a range of text types, including traditional tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, short films such as Baboon on the Moon, picture books by Anthony Browne and adventure stories such as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. We love putting our own twists on the stories once we have learned them. During Guided Reading, we use the Reciprocal Reading program, which allows us to analyse texts in detail and develop our own opinions about them.

In Mathematics we spend time learning our times tables and making sure that we understand the key skills of mental arithmetic by the time we leave Year Three.

OUR TEACHERS

Mrs Buckle

Hello, I am Mrs Buckle. In 2012 I completed my Primary Teaching with Science Specialism degree at Kingston University obtaining a first class degree with honours.

My first teaching post was at Aveley Primary School in Thurrock where I taught in Year One and Year Two. In 2014, I joined the team at John Perry Primary School and have spent three enjoyable years as a Year Two class teacher.

I strongly believe that all children should have positive learning experiences at school, which give them the skills and qualities that they need to help them develop into well rounded members of society. When I am not teaching, I like to cook, travel and look after Dotty and Betsy (my cats!).

Mrs Moreline

My name is Mrs Moreline. I am currently teaching in year four but have had teaching experience in year groups 3 through to 6. I have been in education for 16 years. I have a husband and three children of my own (although they are young adults now)

My strength is in the teaching of English because of the richness and complexity of our language. I especially like a bit of poetry, children’s of course, and if it is written by Michael Rosen then that is a bonus. I like to make my English lessons a bit like his poems – all about real life situations- if possible.

When I am not teaching you will find me, taking a walk in the countryside, reading a good book or watching rugby ( England of course).  I have not always been a teacher- I have been a sales assistant, a Post Lady and an administrator as well as a full-time mum. I like to think that all those experiences have brought a rich tapestry of skills with them that help me see things from others points of view and help me to be a better all-around understanding teacher.

I personally believe that they are always there for you and encourage children to build these relationships with each other both at school and at home.
