Welcome to Year 3!
Class Teachers: Miss West, Miss Green, Mr Wright and Miss Saunders
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.
Our Learning Journey
Year 3 we have created our own skeletons and labelled the bones. Following on from this, we learnt about muscles and made an arm to show how the muscle would move.
We were lucky enough to visit Conisbrough Castle to support our History learning. We really enjoyed exploring the grounds and looking at the different features of the castle. We had the opportunity to climb the keep and we even went right to the top!
Each of the classes were able to join in a ‘Meet the Medieval’ session. During this, we were able to examine and observe different artefacts from the past. We had to figure out which job these artefacts would match to. Have a look at some of the artefacts below!
In the museum, we learnt lots of different facts. We were able to look at a detailed model of Conisbrough Castle and different artefacts.
We had such an amazing day at Conisbrough Castle!
Oreo and Friends
As part of our Science topic, Funny Bones, we had the opportunity for Oreo and Friends to visit us in school. They brought with them lots of fascinating animals, many we had never seen before!
We were able to hold the animals, stroke them and even feed them. All of the children were very brave and excited to hold new, different animals. They learnt lots of different facts such as their natural habitat, their likes and dislikes and what they eat.
We loved our Oreo and Friends visit!
We have been busy in Science this term learning about rocks! Scientists came to visit us where we tested and identified different rocks into the three types – sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. One part of the investigation involved using pipettes to drop acid onto the rocks. Whether it bubbled or not, helped us identify the rock type. Also in this topic, we drew a variety of rocks and wrote the properties we could see.
In History, we have been focusing on The Romans. We learnt where the Romans invaded and how and why they built roads. During this topic, we were lucky enough to get an artefact box which contained artefacts from this period of time. Inside there were lots of different artefacts and we tried to solve what they were used for. We couldn’t believe how heavy the helmet and sword were!
