Y4 Force & Magnets Day

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.
