'From the seeds of hard work grows a tree of success'

Welcome to Year 3


  Our Fantastic topic this half term is…


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 or swing on a swing? Can you explain why magnets repel and attract? Can you make a penny look shiny and new or build a steel band from pots and pans?


Then, meet Hogarth the Iron Man’s companion… The Iron Man wants a friend… Can you build him one? You must make him strong, sturdy and ready to rumble!

(Cornerstones ‘Mighty Metals’ ILP)
