Mad about Magnets!

Cracking Contraptions- I wonder how that works?


Following in the footsteps of our creative duo Wallace and Gromit, we’ve been marvelling at the mighty magnet! So far, we’ve looked at:

-which materials are magnetic

-the two poles – North and South

-which poles attract and which poles repel

-everyday objects that use magnets


The children had the opportunity this afternoon to dive into books, explore the web and rattle their brains in order to note down just how much they’ve learnt/found out about magnetism.


Well done, Year Three! You’ve been MAGnificent.
