Coalway Junior School

Year 3, Classes 1 & 2

Welcome to Year 3!


This year in Year 3 we have Mr Fishwick and Mrs Young and Mrs Lusted in Class 1 and Mrs Walkley, Mrs Price and Mr Scrivin in Class 2.  


We are super excited to welcome your children into the Juniors. We have lots of exciting things we can't wait for your children to learn!


This term, we will be researching and learning about the Shang Dynasty for our history topic. We will be writing our own story using the text 'The Magic Paintbrush' and create collages in art inspired by the artist Paul Klee. 


In Term 3 our class reading book will be The Bolds by Julian Clary



Your PE t-shirts should be in your house colour and clothes with logos and stripes should not be worn.
You will need to bring your indoor and outdoor PE kit and leave it in your locker to change into for lessons. Our kits need to be in school for a Monday (indoor), Thursday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor).
Please make sure you have a warmer PE kit (jogging bottoms and sweatshirt) during the colder months. 




We love reading in Year 3 and as well as reading a class book, children have individual readers and a book from our school library. We ask at home that our children read three times per week and have this written in their reading record.

Please ensure reading records are in school on a Monday for them to be checked.



Each week you will be given a timestable sheet to help practise your multiplication and division skills. Please take time to complete these. It really helps with your Maths work (especially Number Ninja).

Please return the sheets on a Monday. New sheets will be handed out on a Tuesday. 




Everyone has a login for Spelling Shed (these can be found in your reading diary). We would like you to play some spelling games on Spelling Shed to help you learn the spelling patterns required for Year 3.
