Y3 Magnetic Fields

Pupils learn that we can see how the invisible forces of magnets work by using iron filings to help reveal the magnetic fields being produced by each magnet.

Learning Objectives:

  • POS - notice that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance; describe magnets as having two poles
  • NaG - pupils should explore the behaviour and everyday uses of different magnets
  • WS - pupils should set up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests; identify differences, similarities or changes related to simple scientific ideas and processes; make systematic and careful observations
