Autumn Term Y3

MIGHTY METALS!

Autumn 1

Year 3

Our topic learning will cover these subject this half term: Science, Design and Technology and Art and Design.

You’re an engineer, a scientist, a maker of men (iron men, of course). Explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials. Expand your mind as you test and trial, build and move. Which force is at play as you slide down a slide or swing on a swing? Can you explain why magnets repel and attract? Then, meet Hogarth, the Iron Man’s companion. Can you build the Iron Man a friend? You must make him strong, sturdy and ready to rumble. If you were a metal, which one would you be? Gold, a shimmering, precious and costly mineral? Or steel, that strong and useful alloy? Maybe you’re iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust. Maybe you’re not a metal at all, but a force to be reckoned with!

  

  Year 3 have had a fantastic afternoon completing a scavenger hunt around the school playground and field!
