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.


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.

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.

Miss Khanom

Hello Everyone!

I am Miss Khanom and I am the class teacher for year 3 Malta. I am currently teaching in year 3 but have had teaching experience in both key stage 1 and 2. I have been working in education for over 3 years in various schools in and around London.

My passion and strengths lay in Religious Education and Philosophy as I studied it in college and went on to attain a degree in Studies of Religions. This area of study allowed me to explore the meaning of life and learn to reflect and respect all the world religions. I went on to do my PGCE which allowed me to experience independent teaching in a classroom setting for the first time. It was a memorable and an eye opening experience to the world of education.

In my spare time I love to spend it with my family and friends and host dinner parties. I am the youngest of 10 siblings and I have 18 nephews and nieces altogether, so I end up spending most of my time with them. When I have the opportunity I try to visit famous landmarks and museums in London.

My aspiration to become a teacher started off when I was a child in primary school. I appreciated how much my teachers made an effort to elevate my knowledge in every way possible. I hold the belief that every child should have access to great teaching in order for them to be successful learners.

I believe that through all my personal and educational experiences I have been able to become an open and appreciative teacher who sees great potential in all students. I will continue to strive towards my belief and give every child the best education I can in order for them to flourish.



Year 3’s Photo Frames

Year 3 have worked hard this term at looking at different types of structures. We used this knowledge to design and create our own photo frames using cardboard. We had to think carefully about the structure of the photo frame to ensure that it stood up on its own. Photo frames are usually on display […]

Making photo frames

In year 3 we have been investigating a range of ways we can create free-standing photo frames. During our design and technology lessons we used cards, paper, glue and sticky tape to experiment different ways we can make a 3D shape stand with extra reinforcement. We used various techniques such as folding paper, twisting the card, […]
