London Fields
Primary School

Year 3 have been learning all about forces and magnets!

This term, we have been investigating what forces and magnets are and how they work. 

We have been designing and carrying out all sorts of exciting enquiries and gathering evidence to help us get to grips with forces and magnets. 

Some of our favourite investigations have included:

  • Testing out different surfaces around the school for friction
  • Testing out different materials to find out which are magnetic. We even had a competition to see who could hold the most paperclips!
  • Creating our own compasses using bar magnets

“I really liked the paperclip competition because it really showed me how strong magnets are!” – Ben

“In Science I like investigating with my partner. We come up with scientific questions and answer them together!” - Kemi
