This half term we are learning all about magnets and forces. We will find out what a force is and how surfaces affect friction. We will investigate what a magnet is and what happens when poles are put next to each other. We will investigate which materials are attracted or not to magnets and if they need to touch them. We will make predictions and record our results. We will find out which magnets are the strongest and why. We will draw a bar graph to show and explain our results.
In English we are reading Iron Man by Ted Hughes. During the topic we will describe the Iron Man in a wanted poster, we will write Hogarth's diary about meeting the Iron Man and we will write a playscript.
