4H – Forces and Magnets

In Science, Year 4 have been looking at Forces and Magnets and carried out lots of exciting investigations. We have looked at different materials to see which has the most and least friction. We have also sorted objects into magnetic and non-magnet and looked at different types of magnets, such as: horseshoe, button, cylindrical, ring and bar magnets. We have had fun working out which poles were attracted to each other and which repelled. Also we investigated which type of magnet was the strongest by seeing how many paper clips were attracted to it in a chain. Year 4 are now in the process of designing and creating their own magnetic board game.
