Welcome to Year 3


Hello everyone

My name is Miss Holtby and I am delighted to be teaching Year 3. I am really looking forward to joining St Francis of Assisi in September and getting to know each child in my class.

Before I became a teacher in the UK, I travelled to lots of different countries and taught English to children in Vietnam! I am looking forward to sharing my passion for learning with my class. I love reading and spending time outdoors and I am excited for us to explore the world around us together.

My classroom will be an interactive, creative and happy space in which everyone is valued. In Year 3, we will be positive, give everything a go and push ourselves to be the best that we can be.



Welcome to Year 3 page!

A very warm welcome back to school!

We hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready for a busy and exciting year ahead. A special welcome to new pupils, parents and staff to our school; we hope you will be very happy here.

I would like to say how pleased we all are to see the children again. This is a very special school and one where we all feel extremely privileged to work at.

You and your families are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time. Keep smiling and looking forward to the time we can come together again.

Our team are always available to answer any questions so please ask if there is anything you need. We all believe that working together as a team, we can do the best for your child.

Our school tag line is:
“Nothing is impossible with God”
Following the Christian virtues, we strive to find God in everything we do and share His love.

We hope to use the Year 3 pages to share our exciting work and news with you.  We hope that you enjoy sharing our journey with us.

The Year 3 team
