Magnets in Year 5!

We had some great fun learning all about Magnets in Year 5 today.

We learnt a lot and realised that some of the things we initially knew were misconceptions e.g. we thought all metals were magnetic but we found out that was incorrect! We also had time to experiment and investigate using different metals to put our research to the test! Finally we held a relay race, using magnetic force to push our objects across the floor.
