How Magnetic is Normanhurst School?

Last week, Year 5 took to the playground to investigating materials for their Science lesson on magnets. The class first learnt about the different poles and how magnets can repel and attract. They then looked at the different properties of metals and learnt that not all metals are magnetic. Pupils put this theory to the test by exploring in the playground.

Alfie “It was really fun going into the playground and using magnets to find magnetic objects.”

Chioke – “I enjoyed the lesson because we got to go into partners and find and write down magnetic objects.”

Finley – “I liked the lesson because it shows that we can learn a lot in a few simple minutes whilst having some fun, I found out that not all metals are magnetic.”
