Magnetic challenge

The children were set a challenge to move a ping pong ball from one end of the pipe to the other without touching it.  They had to use what they had learnt about magnets to do this.  Some groups attached a magnetic material to the ping pong ball, others used the repelling action of the same poles being together to move it.  Very impressive Year 3!




Science day

Year 3 and 4 got together during science day to carry out some investigations.  In Year 3 we created static electricity using a balloon to lift our tracing paper newts.  In Year 4 the children made aerodynamic gliders and we enjoyed testing them in the playground.
