Lesson Plan and stimuli 


Science - Magnets and forces


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


We will do a 'catch up' session for those children who miss this lesson.

This week we are learning that magnets have a north and south pole.

The children will experiment putting two magnets together. They will take note of which sides attract and which repel. They will then investigate how the attractive force of a magnet compares to the repulsive force by measuring the distance at which the magnets attract each other to that of when they repel each other. We will repeat the process 3 times to ensure we get the same results each time. We will try and put this investigation on Seesaw.

PowerPoint Presentation







This week we will be testing if the size of the magnet affects the strength of its magnetic force. We understand this might be difficult to undertake at home. We will do a 'catch up' session for those children who miss this lesson.

Activity sheet


This week, the children in class will be posing their own question that they would like to investigate around this topic. You can do this at home. What would you like to find out?
