Forces and Magnets

In our Science lessons, we will:

  • Compare how things move on different surfaces;
  • Notice that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance;
  • Observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others;
  • Compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials;
  • Describe magnets as having two poles;
  • Predict whether two magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing.
