Goldfinches – Year 3

Welcome to the Goldfinches Class!


Hello, I'm Miss Blyth and I am very excited to be teaching in Year 3 this year, this is my second year teaching at Coates Primary School and I am the RE lead at this school. I am particularly interested in travelling and love exploring new places. I really enjoy sport and I love to run. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. 


We have some really interesting topics to look forward to this academic year:

Autumn 1- BOOM!

Autumn 2- Through the Ages

Spring 1- Who Built the Pyramids?

Spring 2- The Ancient Mayans 

Summer 1 - Settling in through the Ages

Summer 2 - Location, location, location

For Spring Term, PE is on Mondays and Thursdays. 



Useful Information

  • Children are expected to read regularly and bring their reading book and diary to school every day.
  • Homework is uploaded to Google Classroom every Thursday and is due in on Tuesday. 
  • Spellings are uploaded to Google Classroom every Thursday and your child will be tested on these the Wednesday after they have been set.
  • If your child is having a school dinner then please share the different options available to them so that they know whether they are having the meat, vegetarian, jacket potato or pick 'n' mix option.



For the main focus of homework I would like to see the children reading, spelling and practicing their number skills. We have some  school linked websites to support this, and I hope you are able to support your child in accessing these at least once a week. The links are as follows:
