Fantastic Forces

In our topic this half term, we have been looking at forces, in particular at magnetic force.

We are doing a series of experiments to look at how forces work and how they impact on our lives.

In the playground, we looked at how we use push and pull.

Using cars and ramps, we tested a variety of materials to see which material caused the least friction. We ensured it was a fair test by working together to ensure that we only had one variable.

Using bar magnets, we have made compasses and discussed the Earth’s magnetic force. We have observed how magnets attract and repel other magnets and looked at how magnets are made and used in everyday life.
