Science - LIGHT

This term we are investigating Forces and Magnets in a range of practical scientific investigations in the classroom.

1) Ask - does a magnet need to be in contact with an object in order to attract it? Give them a magnet and an object to discover that it does not.

2) Ask - how far apart can a magnet attract an object?

The children will then investigate how strong the magnetic force of a magnet is by measuring the distance that a magnet stops attracting an object.

You will need a paper clip and a magnet. Place the paper clip half a centimetre away from the magnet and see if it attracts.

Record on a piece of paper the distance and whether it attracts or not.

Next, place the paper clip and magnet 1cm apart and repeat. Continue moving them half a centimetre apart until the magnet no longer attracts the paper clip.

3) The investigation can then be repeated with a different magnetic object to compare the results.

We will try and video our class investigation and place it on Seesaw.

DT- Designing and making a treasure box

 We are currently sewing our treasure boxes and if we can get your box to you we will. 

If this is not possible you can have some time to assess the progress of your box. Think about what is working well and what needs to be improved? You might also want to continue to design what you would like your final product to look like.
