Welcome To Year 3

Meet the Year Group Teachers,

Mrs Grimwood…

Hi, I’m Nikki Grimwood and I joined Oxclose Primary Academy in January 2015. I’ve moved all over KS2, working in Y5, Y4 and Y3! I completed my PGCE at Durham University and before that gained a degree in History and Criminology in Sheffield. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and taking our dog Sprocket on long walks.

Mrs Jordan-Richardson.

Hello, I am Alexandra Jordan Richardson. I have been teaching at Oxclose for 15 years, most of which I have spent in Early Years and Key Stage 1. My favourite subjects to teach are reading, PE and PSHE. Currently I am a subject leader for PE and PSHE across the school.

After I had my son in 2013 I returned to school working 3 days each week. Since then I have thoroughly enjoyed working in a range of different classes within the school.

When not at school, I enjoy spending time with children Lawrence and Bea. I also enjoy going to the gym and shopping.

Health and Happiness Week

Year 3 have really enjoyed Health and Happiness week. We have completed various activities throughout the week to reflect on ourselves and what we are like as a person. We have also explored how much of an impact what we do and say can have on other people. We have tried out a number of mindfulness techniques to help us to relax as well as trying yoga. A highlight of our week was the workshop that we were lucky enough to take part in with some visitors to our school. In this session we explored different emotions and used drama to investigate ways to prevent situations from escalating. We also talked about ways to keep our brains and body active.

Science Week

Science week was fantastic! We got to take part in a number of activities throughout the week and found out lots of new information along the way. One of the highlights was Wednesday afternoon when we took over the hall to find out all about dinosaurs and evolution in a number of ways, from the Tree of Life activity to working with our group to piece together a human skeleton! We even had a scaled drawing of a dinosaur bone to measure ourselves against.

World Book Day 2019

Year 3 had a fantastic time dressing up for World Book Day. We took part in a number of activities throughout the day including shared reading with Y5 and reading our favourite books. We even had a Horrid Henry story read to us by Mrs Bolam in the library!

World Book Day

Year 3 had a fantastic day dressed as their favourite book characters and reading their favourite books. We had quizzes, wrote book reviews and shared our stories with our friends, trying to persuade them to read our book. Our favourite activity was a game where we had a book character’s name on a post it note and everyone had to try to guess who we were by asking yes/no questions. It was a lot of fun!

Year 3 Puzzle Afternoon

Year 3 enjoyed puzzle day, especially when our parents came in. We love working as a team in year 3.


Roald Dahl 100 Day

Our favourite part of Roald Dahl day was helping Penny to design the story chair. We thought of the stories we knew and how we could represent them on the chair.  We had lots of chocolatey ideas when we thought about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the tail of Mr Fox was sticking out from behind the chair on many designs.  We can’t wait to see the finished chair!
