Coalway Junior School

Year 3, Classes 1 & 2

Welcome to Year 3!


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


This term we will be learning all about the water cycle as part of our geography work on water, weather and climate. We will be researching and making 3D models of the water cycle during our DT lessons. In our science lessons we are continuing to learn about plants and plan on doing a spot of gardening, thanks to our school eco councillors mission to improve the garden area on our grounds.



In Term 6 our class reading book will be Who Let The Gods Out by Maz Evans. 




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.

Today Year 3 designed and played their own Theseus and the Minotaur Labyrinth game! They used lots of positive and negative cards to collect along their routes. They reported back on whether or not they (as Theseus) were successful in slaying the Minotaur!
