In Science this term, Year 3 will be learning about Forces and Magnets.
Children this term will predict, compare, experiment and assess their findings in the topic ‘Forces and Magnets’. Children will investigate the question ‘what is a force?’ and experiment to see how forces are used every day. Why do we not float around like spacemen in space? What is gravity? As they learn about friction, children will explore the world around them as they use a range of experiments to find out how objects move on different surfaces.
Children are also introduced to magnetism as they continue to classify and compare. They will observe how magnets can attract and repel each other and explore reasons behind why, through a serious of experiments using everyday materials.
