Topic Overview

Spring Term 1 and 2

Mighty Metals

Over the next 2 terms, Year 3 will delve into the world of metals - Mighty Metals! The children will become engineers, scientists, a maker of men (iron men, of course).

 

We will explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials... Expanding our minds as we investigate, test and trial, build and move. 

 

Which force is at play as we slide down a slide or swing on a swing? Can we explain why magnets repel and attract? Can we make a penny look shiny and new?

 

Then, we will meet Hogarth the Iron Man's companion. The Iron man wants a friend...can we build him one? We must make him strong, sturdy and ready to rumble!

 

If we were a metal, which one would we be? Gold, a shimmering, precious and costly mineral? Or steel, that strong useful alloy? Maybe we will be iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust!

 

Maybe we are not metals at all - but a force to be reckoned with!!!
