Marvellous Magnetism!

Year 3 had a busy week of Science learning about all magnetism.

They started the week going on a scavenger hunt around school with a magnet to discover anything at all they could that was magnetic. Some interesting discoveries were made. It was interesting to find that not all metals are magnetic which some of us had originally thought might be the case!

We then spent the rest of the week exploring the strength of different magnets by carrying out an investigation. We have been working on how to conduct a scientific investigation including making predictions;  thinking about what equipment we might need; planning a method and recording our results. We then spent lots of time discussing our analysis to see what we have learnt from the investigation.

Our Science week was lots of fun and we learnt lots!
