Coalway Junior School

Year 3, Classes 1 & 2

Welcome to Year 3!


The teaching team in Year 3 are Mrs Lyons, Mrs Walkley, Mrs Price, Mrs Young and Mrs Virgin. 

This term we have a History theme based on Prehistoric Britain. We will be using a text called 'Stone Age Boy' which highlights what life was like in the Stone Age and we will be writing a story around this theme. Our focus in Maths will be Place Value. 

In Year 3 the expectation is that children should read 3 times a week at home to an adult. This will be checked weekly and there will be reading rewards linked to this. 

We use a platform called Spelling Shed which children can access at home to consolidate their spellings learnt in school. We also use another platform called Lexia to develop reading skills; again children will be able to access this at home as well as in school. Login details for both of these will be stuck into your reading record. 


We look forward to meeting you all and working with you this year.
