In English, children wrote their own explanation text about how magnets work. They used the key vocabulary within their writing well! We also looked at writing letters. The children have written letters to Pen Pals in Canada and I'll try to send these in the post next week! I enjoy being able to provide the class with this opportunity as I feel it's a great way to allow the children to write with a purpose.
In topic, we've covered what materials are magnetic and we've also learned how magnets work, being sure to use the correct vocabulary. We also discussed how the Earth is essentially one big magnet! Cool stuff! Check out this tough game involving magnets. Be sure to finish your homework first though!
