Welcome to Year 3, and the start of the journey through Key Stage 2. Our aim is for all Year 3 pupils to become more independent, confident and self-motivated learners through our engaging and exciting curriculum. We are passionate about learning, and we want to inspire this love of learning in all our pupils.

During this year, there is a great emphasis on the key skills of writing, reading and mathematics to give all pupils a firm grounding of the keys skills to enable them to be successful across Key Stage 2.

We hope your child enjoys Year 3 as much as we will. For more information, please look at our Year 3 blog.

Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to welcome your child into school, and will be available to answer any questions or queries. If you wish to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher to discuss anything further, please contact the school office.


At Park Hill Primary School, we are passionate about the curriculum and always plan imaginative and creative lessons, with the children at the centre of every decision we make. We want the best for our children, and ensure all lessons are suitably supportive and challenging for all individuals and their needs.

We like the children to be responsible for their own learning, and support them to choose work that will challenge their understanding and extend their knowledge.

Please find our curriculum jigsaw here to see what topics we will cover over the Autumn term. Autumn Term 1


Mr Hammond

Hello, my name is Mr Hammond and this is my fifth year working at Park Hill. I feel very proud to work at Park Hill due to the strong ethos of the school and the core values that help guide and inspire the children through the early stages of their education.

I am the PE Coordinator for the school and I feel passionate about promoting positive attitudes towards leading a healthy lifestyle along with encouraging children to challenge themselves in new situations and celebrating the children’s achievements. I’m very excited to be working alongside other staff within school to embed a mastery approach to mathematics this year, too!

I love teaching in Middle School as the children are so inquisitive and enthusiastic about their learning and they engage is quality discussions which add value to lessons. I regularly look to use technology and ICT within lessons in order to equip the children with the skills needed to engage in society, but to have lots of fun as well!

Mrs Roper

Hello, I am Mrs Roper and have been at Park Hill for almost 7 years. When I started teaching I specialised in Early Years education and also have experience teaching from nursery up to Year 4.

I love teaching children and look forward to the moment when I see them smile with pride at their success. My favourite subject is Science and my favourite children’s author is Allan Ahlberg. I lead Eco Schools at Park Hill and I really enjoy working outdoors and completing practical projects in the garden and forest school areas.
