Over the first half of term two, Year Four have been learning about magnets. Each class came along for three sessions in the science room. The first session was lots of fun as I put out all of our magnet kits and let the boys have a big play. Afterwards it was great to hear what they had learnt through their play.
The classes then went on to learn about how magnets attract and repel, the names of the ends of the magnets, what types of objects are magnetic and the magnetic field around a magnet.
Now that they've covered these ideas about magnets they are going on to use their new knowledge in their classrooms to construct their own magnetic games. Well done Year Four!
