Year 3 had an exciting end to our Billy Goats Gruff topic. The room was overrun with trolls and goats for the day! The goats were terrified as the trolls got their revenge, terrorising and teasing our goats. We even had a troll themed meal during the afternoon, enjoying goat’s cheese, goat’s eyeballs and even goat’s veins. Everyone had a fantastic day!
Welcome To Year 3
Meet the Year Group Teachers, Miss Arkle…
My name is Stasi Arkle and I have been teaching for over twenty years! During this time, I have worked throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. I came to Oxclose Primary Academy to do some supply work and have stayed ever since! I currently work in the Year 3.
I love to listen to music in my spare time and jumped at the chance to start the Oxclose Primary Academy Choir in school. I also love football, WWE and darts. I like to spend time with my family and friends and my cat Willow.
and, 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.
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!
