Autumn 1- Forces and Magnets


Children in Clumber class have learnt: 

- to compare how things move on different surfaces

- to notice that some forces need contact between 2 objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance

-to observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others

- to compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials
