Sandhill Primary

Class 3

Welcome to our Class 3 page!

Welcome back to the summer term! What a crazy year we have had so far but I’m confident we can all enjoy the summer term together.

Meet your Teachers

Hello! My name is Miss Palmer and I am your Year 3 teacher and Deputy Head.

I have a little girl who keeps me busy at home and she is 7 years old. I love sunshine and spending time outside but I don’t like thunderstorms! I enjoy reading books by new authors and I am always on the lookout for recommendations so I can’t wait to hear about yours! I have recently started to go running in my spare time and am enjoying finding new places to go. I am looking forward to seeing you all in September and can’t wait to get to know you all!

Class Information

You will need to bring your PE kit to school every day. You will have a peg in the classroom that you can keep it on during the week and take it home at the weekend. Your teaching assistants will be working across the Y3 and Y4 classes so you will get used to working with lots of different adults for different things.
