Science - Forces and Magnets

Magnet Strength 

Today, Class 3 pupils investigated the strength of different magnets. As a class, we brainstormed ideas as to how we would test strength and played around to see which methods would be realistic for us to carry out. We finally decided that we would test the strength of magnets…

Magnetism

Last week we looked at forces and how they can make an object slow down, speed up or change direction. This week we explored magnets and magnetic forces.

We learnt that magnetism is an invisible force that acts between two materials that do not have to be in direct contact. You…

Pupil Blog - Forces in Action

Weekly blog by Caden and Chloe S

This week we have being learning about forces in Science. In groups we carried out an investigation to find out how much force is needed to move a toy car on different surfaces.

Prediction: it will take more force to move on a rough surface

Equipment:…

Science - Forces and Magnets

Pushes and Pulls

Today we started our 'Forces and Magnets’ topic by talking about different types of forces. These included:

  • Pushing
  • Pulling
  • Twisting
  • Magnetic force
  • Gravity
  • Air resistance 
  • Upthrust
  • Spring force
  • Friction

We discussed examples of pulling and pushing and…

Science - Rocks and Soils

Rocks and Soils

In Science this term we have been looking at 'Rocks and Soils'.

We have turned into geologists and paleontologists to find out more!

We:

  • have explored a variety of rocks and grouped them in different ways according to their observable features and attributes
