In Science, we will be continuing to study forces and magnets. In our lessons, we will compare how materials and objects move on different surfaces, observe that some forces need contact between 2 objects but notice that magnetic forces can act at a distance and observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others. We will explore a range of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify a range of magnetic materials. The children will also be developing their prediction skills, by predicting whether two magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing. The children will have the opportunity to complete a number of investigations to prove and justify their findings.
