Last half term, the Year 3s were learning all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We produced some lovely stories inspired by Stone Age Boy. In addition, children enjoyed learning about many different aspects of life throughout the ages.
Our topic for this half term is Mighty Metals. For English, children will be reading the Tin Forest by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson. We will be using the story to help us write an exciting setting description. In Science, we will be learning about magnetic forces. To understand why some materials attract magnets, whilst other materials repel magnets. We are excited to be learning about Art. This half term, our focus will be on embossing. We will be using various tools to create different effects and imprints on foil. As part of our DT this half term, children will be thinking about taking designs from 2D shapes to 3D shapes.
