Howdo magnets work ?

This week the children have been discovering how magnets work.  They have been testing out different objects to find out if they are magnetic or not.  The children took part in an activity ‘how far can the ball jump’.  They started at the starting line, slowly moving the magnetic wand towards the ball.  When the magnet 🧲 attracted the ball the children would make a mark where the ball jumped on to the wand then measured the distance using a measuring tape.  Some children got very creative and created their own magnetic maze game.  After they designed their game they used the magnetic wand and ball to make their way through the maze to the finish line.  The mazes were amazing 🤩
