Week beginning 17th January - Magnets experiments!

P7B have started their Physics investigations by exploring how magnets work through a series of experiments!

During this lesson, we...

  • Tested various magnets to find their north and south poles, observing how they attracted or repelled each other.
  • Magnetised other objects, creating a paper clip chain using a magnet.
  • Explored which items are magnetic, including discussing the use of magnets to find out which coins are fake. 
  • Plotted the magnetic field using iron filings through different surfaces - paper, card and wood.
  • Compared the strength of magnets to attract objects from a distance.

Our Inspire Lead Mrs. Craig also was on hand to help pupils understand how to showcase their learning by creating their own app on Keynote using iPads. Have a look at our photos below!
