Magnets in Year 1

Yesterday in Year 1 the children looked at which materials attracted magnets. We started the lesson by exploring materials within the classroom.

The children then explored the materials in the outside area and discussed which materials attract the magnet.

The children descovered that the material that attracted magnets was metal. The children then had to use their problem solving skills to get a paper clip out of a paper cup without getting their fingers wet using a magnet. They completed the task in record time!

The next day one of the children very kindly brought a magnetic game into school. The children worked together to assemble the game and then played the game in groups.
