On 5th November Class 3 started their Science theme on magnets and forces. As we had not used the magnets before, we used an identifying enquiry approach to observe the magnets and explore what they do. We discovered magnets have a North and South pole, a compass has a magnet in it, certain ends of a magnet will attract whilst others repel and that magnets only attract to certain metals. We also discovered that a magnet will make a paper clip like magic.
We were extremely engaged in our learning and could discuss it with our peers afterwards.
