This term, Year 3 have been very busy. Our topic for the term has been Mighty Metals. We have had great fun and learnt lots about forces., working scientifically to investigate pushes and pulls, friction and gravity. We even investigated magnetism by making magnetic slime!
In English we have enjoyed learning about writing newspaper reports, using our Author of the term Ted Hughes’ book, The Iron Man for inspiration.
We also used the Iron Man and British artist, Anthony Gormley, known for creating the Angel of the North sculpture, to inspire our art, getting creative, with colour wash backgrounds, silhouette art and metal sculpting.
Congratulations to Oscar and Iyla on receiving their pen licences! We are sure that there will be more of these to award over the coming months as Sycamore continue to work hard on their hand writing.
