Year 3 - Elm Class & Ash Class

Welcome to Elm Class (Miss O'Brien) and Ash Class (Mrs Osborne) 
A big welcome to our new Year 3's! We can't wait to meet you all in September.  It's really exciting that you are now part of Key Stage 2 and we hope that you enjoy being in our lovely new school as much as we do.  
 
Our first topic this term is the Ancient Egyptians and we have planned some fantastic art work to do with you during the first week back.  This work will be displayed in our classrooms and will make them look even nicer! In Maths we will be learning about place value and recapping some of the skills previously taught in Year 2.  In English we will be reading the book 'The Egyptian Cinderella' and covering a range of creative writing.  The Egyptians are a fantastic  topic to cover and we will learn a range of aspects about this civilization including the mummification process, the River Nile, pyramids and lots more!
 
Below is a guided tour of Year 3.  Take a look around our great new classrooms and we can't wait to see you there in September.  Have a fantastic Summer break! Miss O'Brien and Mrs Osborne.

A little bit about Miss O'Brien.....
 
I thought I would share a few things about myself.  I have been teaching at Sandy for quite a while now and I really love being at this school.  I am originally from Manchester and moved to Cornwall 17 years ago.  I have 2 children and 2 step children, 2 dogs and 1 puppy, a rabbit, a guinea pig, 2 gerbils and 1 fish.  So my time at home is quite busy but I wouldn't have it any other way! I'm looking forward to spending my summer with my family and training my puppy (Marley) not to eat everything in sight and how to heal on the lead.  Wish me luck!  I can't wait to share stories with you about the holidays and listen to your adventures too.

About Mrs Osborne......
 
Hello Year 3! I'm Mrs Osborne and this will be my 3rd year of teaching at Sandy Hill Academy.  I am very excited to be moving to Year 3 with you and have been working hard to get our classroom ready for September.  
 
The summer holidays have now arrived and I am really looking forward to spending time with my children- Holly and Toby.  We love going to the beach as much as possible to paddle-board and bodyboard and generally splash around in the waves.  To keep fit, I enjoy running and getting out and about on my bike. I love listening to music (and singing) and can often be seen out running -singing along to my tunes! Give me a wave if you see me on my travels! 
 
I am so excited to see you all in September and begin our Year 3 journey together as Ash Class.  I look forward to hearing about all of your adventures when we are back at school. 
Have an amazing summer holiday and I will see you in September :-)
