Science Magnets

For our Science topic we have been looking at magnets and what materials are magnetic. 4B were set the challenge of guiding a counter (with metal edging) through the maze without touching it. The only materials they had were string, a paperclip and a magnet. Soon 4B realised they had to use the magnet to guide it through. We learnt all about how magnets work. Including key words such as:

  • North Pole
  • South Pole
  • Repel
  • Attract
  • Push
  • Pull


We then had a go at creating our own Magnet Toy Design. In which the children had to really think about how they would use the magnets in their design.
