Welcome to Year 3
Our fantastic topic this half term is…
Calling all engineers, scientists and designers…
Explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and
materials. Open your mind as you test trial, build and move.
Which force is at play as you slide or 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?
Meet Hogarth, the Iron Man’s companion. The Iron Man wants an iron
friend… We will go head to toe in competition with Year 4 to build him
one. They must be 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!
Perhaps you are not a metal at all – but a force. A force to be reckoned
