A very warm welcome to the Spring term in Year 4 at St Anne’s!
Our new topic is “Mighty Metals”. We will explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials.
We will find out which forces are at play as we slide down a slide or swing on a swing. We will explain why magnets repel and attract, and make a penny look shiny and new.
We will meet Hogarth, the Iron Man’s companion and make a friend for the Iron Man.
We will ask “If you were a metal, which one would you be?” – Gold, a shimmering, precious and costly mineral? Steel, that strong and useful alloy? Maybe iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust!
We will also pay a visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to explore and complete a “Walk, Take, Make” workshop.
