Year 3 Team (ID 1214)
This half term our topic was 'Rise of the Robots'.
Our English topic started in a very exciting way. We were sent investigation sheets from a crime unit as strange items had appeared around our school grounds. We found a robot's head in a tree, limbs hanging, a picture of a cliff and written clues to name a few. We studied the clues and made our own conclusions of why they had appeared. This introduced our class text 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. We then wrote character descriptions using similes and expanded noun phrases.
We were very excited to start our topic with messages sent from a little robot friend called Rory. He found himself waking up next to a fast flowing river. We have helped him on his journey to answer the big question "Are all rivers the same?" In order to be able to make an informed answer, we learnt about the features of rivers, studied the River Severn and then compared it to other rivers from around the world.
Rory sent us regular updates about his whereabouts and adventures which included him starting a new job in a recycling centre. He needed our help in exploring magnets to make his job easier. We learnt about the magnetic poles, how magnets attract and repel and which materials are magnetic. Rory invited his friend Magnetic Marcus over for tea so we helped him get there using magnets.
