Our topic for this term is... 'mighty metals'
Hello Sweet Peas and adults,
I'm very excited to share our new topic for this term 'mighty metals' to find out more please see the topic letter attached below which contains information regarding year group spellings (these will also be added to doodlespell), PE days, reading books, optional topic homework and apps you can use at home to help support learning in the classroom.
'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 down a 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? . 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. Maybe you’re not a metal at all, but a force to be reckoned with.'
I can't wait to embark on our 'mighty metal' adventure!
