Magnet strength

Date: 12th Oct 2018 @ 2:20pm

In Science, we have been learning all about magnets. Last week, with Mrs Pugh, we learnt about what magnets were, whether they attract or repel and which materials are magnetic or not. This week, we have been testing magnet strength. We carefully planned our investigation then used a range of magnets (bar, bar wand, horseshoe, ring, button and magnetic letters) and tested how many paper clips each magnet would attract. We were very surprised at how many paper clips they could hold- some teams had to count over 200 paper clips!

Take a look at us working hard:
