Southey Green Primary School & Nurseries

Ready. Respectful. Responsible.

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Class Teachers: Miss Machin, Miss Wood and Mrs Duffy


Year 3 is a fun year for children where lots of exciting learning takes place.


At Southey Green, we promise to provide our children with 6 unique experiences in each year group. We call these ‘Southey’s Super Six’. These tasks give our children something to look forward to each year and in places, provide an opportunity that the children may not have previously had.


Take a look at our topics for this coming year. We intend to teach the children a wide range of skills alongside an array of knowledge for each unit. There may be slight changes throughout the year depending on weather, availability and other opportunities that arise.

Spring (2024)


What an amazing start to the new year! We have been working really hard in our classrooms and have achieved so much. A particular highlight for us has been our Pattern Party Parent Workshop. Parents were invited in to work with us on an artistic masterpiece! It was really nice to spend some extra time with our adults. All of our work links with our Art unit and has helped us develop our skills ready for the upcoming lessons.

We also have had a visit from South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue to teach us all about Fire Safety. Children represented school really well and learned lots of information to share with their adults at home.

Autumn (2023)


We have absolutely loved getting to know our new year 3 children and we have had so much fun already!
In just a few short weeks, we have been to Conisbrough Castle, invited parents into school for a  DT workshop and participated in a  French Day. Plus - the year is just going to keep on getting better!

Have a look below at some of the wonderful things we have been up so far.

Best Bits Autumn (2023)

In history, we have been learning all about The Normans and had the opportunity to visit Conisbrough Castle.  This medieval fortification enabled the children to experience a real-life Norman Castle. Investigating the ruins of a Motte and Bailey castle brought our history learning to life!

As part of our Design and Technology unit of work, we jumped at the chance to invite parents into school to join us in our sewing adventure. The year 3 children loved to show their developing sewing skills to parents and the teachers loved having extra sets of hands even more!


Now that we are in Year 3, one of our 'Super Six' is to learn French. We were very excited to develop our knowledge and French speaking skills in Southey's very own 'French Day!' Not only did we learn facts about France and sing French songs but we also developed our art skills using pointellism - a technique of painting that originated from Paris. 


In year 3, we have also been developing our timestables skills and we are now included within the competitions for year 3, 4, 5 and 6! We may only be young, but we are certainly challenging those older children.

You can help us at home by challenging us to learn our timestables and by helping us to log on to TTRockstars.
