We hope you've been enjoying finding out about magnets. Have a watch of this video and see if you can note down some of the materials they mention that magnetic objects are often made from. Then, do some research to see if you can find out some other objects that are made from those materials. 
Another activity: If you have a magnet at home (maybe one from the fridge?) 
Mix some paper clips up with some rice and put them in a closed, see-through plastic container (a plastic bottle?). Using a magnet, how long does it take you to separate the paper clips from the rice without opening the container? Enjoy! :) 

24.03.20 - What is a magnet? 
Have a look at the following link. Watch the video and have a read of the information underneath. 
Write a couple of summary sentences about magnets. 

18.03.20 - In Spring 2 this term we have been learning about forces and magnets. Have you got any fridge magnets at home? Take one of them and see if you can find any other things that are magnetic at home. Is there anything that particularly surprises you? Make a list of things around your home or in the world that you know have magnets in them or are magnetic.
