Magnet Hunt

The Horses have been exploring magnets and forces. They have shown a growing interest in this area of science. The children talked about what types of materials might be magnetic and why they thought this. The children used a chart of items to make predictions about if each item would be magnetic. They tested the magnets on the items and was able to record in print which items were magnetic to look at the early stages of data collection and detailing their work in print. 

Following on from this the children explored the learning environment to investigate magnetic resources.
