Year 3

 

 

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.

Mrs Glover

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.

Heights of Abraham Visit - March 2018

As part of our termly topic 'Land of Hope and Glory' the Y3 class were up  early, arriving at school at 7.20am, ready for the long coach journey to Matlock Bath - Derbyshire.  The children were off to experience the very different topography in Derbyshire compared to the flat Fens of Lincolnshire at 'The Heights of Abraham' visitor centre.  As part of this visit the children enjoyed many fun experiences to enhance  learning which had taken place previously in the classroom.  Year 3 enjoyed the cable car journies to and from the hilltop, exploration of two different human caves - looking at a variety of rock formations- and viewpoints to highlight the difference between land formation in differing counties of the UK.

We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs from our unforgettable experience ...

Year 3 had the most wonderful, enriching day.

 

ROOTS TO FOOD

On 11th June Y3 were very lucky to take part in a cooking workshop in school. The children were all involved in preparing and cooking a fantastic healthy meal with Darren our visitor from 'Roots To Food.' Darren spends his time visiting schools teaching children about how to make quick, easy healthy based meals that taste wonderful. Below are some pictures of this great afternoon we had in school.
