Year 3 - Armstrong
Year 3 - Armstrong Class
Term 1 -Autumn 2020
What a fantastic start to the new year from everyone in Armstrong Class. Everyone has worked really hard and settled into Scouthbrrom St James really quickly, despite all the Covid restrictions that are in place.
Our topic through Term 1 was 'Feel the Force', based on our work in science to do with Forces. We looked at push and pull forces, magnetism and ended the topic designing a marble run which combined our knowledge of forces in a practical way. We also prepared for a 'virtual' harvest festival, making harvest inspires art work.
Please find a selection of photographs showing what we have been up to in Term 1.
