Year 4 enjoyed a Science day learning about forces. They
- Measured the force required to pull different wood blocks up ramps with different surfaces – comparing how things move on different surfaces.
- Experimented with magnets, investigating the poles and predicting whether two magnets would attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing.
- Observed how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others.
- Compared and grouped together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials.
