Goldfinches – Year 3

Welcome to the Goldfinches Class!


Hello, I'm Mrs Benson and I'm really excited to be teaching in Year 3 until Mrs Penney returns from maternity leave. I have been teaching for over 20 years but would normally take enrichment groups so i am looking forward to teaching whole class for a while.


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

Autumn 1 - Who Built the Pyramids?

Autumn 2 - BOOM!

Spring 1 -Through the Ages

Spring 2 - The 4 Kingdoms

Summer 1 - The 4 Kingdoms

Summer 2 - Snecking through the Fens


For Autumn Term 1, PE (s) will be on a Monday afternoon (striking and fielding) and Wednesday afternoon Gymnastics. Autumn 2 Monday afternoon Dance (solar System) and Wednesday afternoon Gymnastics.



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:
