Goldfinches – Year 3

Welcome to the Goldfinches Class!


Hello and welcome to the Goldfinches class page. I am Mrs Penney and I am very excited to be teaching Year 3 this year. The Goldfinches class will be helping Coates Primary to create a heritage link with a local historical and archaeological site, Must Farm and I am thrilled that we have been given this opportunity.


I am a musician and love singing and can't wait for the exciting year ahead to take our school choir further this year. I also enjoy reading and dancing in my spare time.


Our topics this year:

Autumn 1

The Mystery of Prehistory

Autumn 2

Creepy Crawlies

Spring 1

The Great Invaders

Spring 2

Magical Worlds

Summer 1

Ancient Worlds

Summer 2

Journey to India



Useful information

  • Homework will consist of spellings and reading each week. Children are expected to read at home regularly and bring their reading book to school every day.
  • Spellings will be set on a Friday and children will be tested the following Thursday.
  • The children will take part in P.E. lessons every Monday and Wednesday. 
  • If your child is having a school dinner then please share the different options available with them so that they know whether they are having the meat, vegetarian or salad option.


We have a fantastic year ahead and I am really looking forward to working with the children and supporting them in their learning. If you have any questions please feel free to come and see me.

Many thanks,

Mrs Penney
