Goldfinches – Year 3

Welcome to the Goldfinches Class!


Hello and welcome to the Goldfinches class page. I am Mrs Cook and I am very excited to be teaching Year 3 this year. I have been teaching for four years in both Year 2 and Year 3 and I can't wait to start my new adventure at Coates Primary School.


I love to dance and sing and I am learning to ice-skate, although I still need lots of practice! When I am not at school, I love spending time outside geocaching or walking my dog with my family.



Our topics this year:

Autumn 1

The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out

Autumn 2

Choccy Woccy Doo Dah

Spring 1

Active Earth

Spring 2

When in Rome

Summer 1

Land of the Three Quarter Sky

Summer 2

The Great Invaders



Useful information

Weekly homework challenges include: spellings, reading, Mathletics and Bug Club.

  • Children are expected to read at home regularly and bring their reading book to school every day.

  • Half Termly homework projects: these are set at the start of every half term. Children are to choose at least 5 of the activities to complete at home. Completed homework is to be handed in on the Friday before the last full week of each half term.

  • PE will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. 

  • 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 Cook








Reading is really important. Try learning to read all the words in the 100 word list. To help with writing you could learn to spell them too!

Next try the 200 word list..............GOOD LUCK!!
