Goldfinches – Year 3

Welcome to the Goldfinches Class!


Hello, I'm Mrs Penney and I'm thrilled to be back at Coates and teaching in Year 3 following my maternity leave. This is my fourth year of teaching and I am Music, History and Geography lead this year. I am very interested in history and the past and also love singing and playing the piano and violin.


We have some really exciting topics to look forward to for the rest of the year. Our current topic is: Who built the Pyramids? 


PE will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. For Wednesdays the children can come in their PE kit as we will be having PE before break. 



I am really keen on the main work children do being reading and practicing their number skills. We have two school websites to support this, and I hope you are able to support your child in accessing these once a week. The links are as follows:

Bug Club -

Times Tables Rockstars:

School have also just invested in Spelling Shed:

Useful Websites with Games to Support the Children’s Learning:


Phonics and Reading:


If you need any help accessing these sites or need a new password please let me know.


Thank you for your ongoing support.


Mrs Penney











As well as learning your weekly spellings, try to learn to read and write all of these words in the lists I have attached. I would be really pleased if you could then add these into your writing.
