Year 3

Mr Gibson

Hello there! My name is Mr Gibson and I am one of the Year 3 teachers.

In Year 3 we study some incredibly exciting topics including broadening our scope of the world around us by investigating the history and geography of our neighbouring town Consett! As the year continues we’ll also be looking at the Roman invasion, growing various plants and flowers, putting all of our maths skills to use in solving some fiendish puzzles, and doing my favourite thing of all: writing stories!

I love watching movies and playing videogames and swimming and running and especially eating M&Ms (just the plain ones, none of those peanut monstrosities). These are all things I hope we’ll get to do in the coming year in the classroom – although I’m not sure how I’m going to sneak my PlayStation in or explain the chocolate stains on the books, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it…

Year 3 is a big year for our children, where our infants become juniors and, though things can be a little nerve-wracking at first, it doesn’t last long. I have a classroom that’s filled with music and laughter and lots of chat about all of the things we love. I guarantee that Year 3 will be the most exciting, funniest and (I have to put this) educational year ever.

Mr Grimes

Hi! I’m Mr Grimes and I am one of the year 3 teachers. 

Year 3 is a fantastically fun year full of great topics such as Cool Consett learning all about the geography and history of the local area, the Romans and how they conquered much of Europe, plants, forces (when we get to this you will all find out why I’m allergic to snow) and many more. We will be delving further down the rabbit hole in regards to one of my favourite subjects: Maths, as well as creating all sorts of wonderfully creative writing in English. 

Year 3 is an exciting year, new classrooms, new teachers and even a whole new building. We are sure to have loads of fun doing some amazing activities. I just hope you all enjoy it as much as I do! 

Let me tell you a little about myself. In my spare time I’m a full time gamer! I love nothing more than spending an embarrassingly amount of time sitting in front of my precious (that’s my computer). I love almost all sports, my favourites to watch and play are football and tennis. I am an avid Chelsea fan much to the displeasure of anyone that meets me but if I had to pick a North East team it would obviously be Newcastle. When I’m not wasting away in front of a computer I do BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) multiple times a week, quite a niche hobby but a really fun one!
