Welcome to Year 3
Mrs Doud (Assistant Headteacher)
Hello, I have been teaching at Deeping St James since 2000 and have worked throughout the school from Y2 to Y6. During my time here I have had many roles in school, currently being an Assistant Headteacher and curriculum lead for the mathematics and science group. Before having my own 2 children I worked full-time but since starting a family I work part-time with Mrs Glover as a job share. My favourite subject is mathematics, this is something which I really enjoy teaching to all the children in my class and hope that by the end of year 3 they enjoy it as much as I do! When not working hard, I enjoy spending time with my family, cycling and socialising with my friends.
Hello, I have been teaching here since 2001. I have experience from years 1-6, but particularly enjoy teaching year 3. My favourite subjects are English and anything creative. Like Mrs Doud, before having my own 2 children, I worked full time but now enjoy a part time role. When not working hard at school, my family and I enjoy long walks in the woods and swimming.
Together we pride ourselves in delivering a strong education for your children using effective communication links to ensure that we are both fully well aware of all the children's needs. We teach to our subject strengths with a view that your child will receive the best all round education that we can both provide.

Roald Dahl Day
Last Friday we had a fantastic morning celebrating Roald Dahl day. We focussed on two of his stories; The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. For the BFG, year 3 all made a dream catcher. They worked so hard and were great co-operative group workers. Then the class went on a hunt to find a special golden ticket with their name on which would allow them to enter the wonderful world of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory!! I hope the children enjoyed the day as much as I did!
Roman Day - Friday 1st November
On Friday, we had a great Roman Day. The children looked amazing in their outfits, thank you parents and carers for all of your hard work in organising these. We started the day with a fantastic fashion show to celebrate our outfits. We do have some budding models in year 3! Throughout the day, the children then learnt how Rome got its name and completed a storyboard. They also made a clay pot, designed and painted a shield, used the library books to research a topic of their choice and put into a leaflet and then completed some extra activities for example: word searches, designing a coin and a maths activity. It was a busy day but I have to say, behaviour was great and it was a really enjoyable day. Well done year 3.
We even had two 'Superhero' Romans join us for the day ...
