Welcome First Class!!
Welcome to Ms Hodgins/Ms Brady’s first class!
These lucky children have two teachers this year and have been getting the best from both since the year started!
We have been learning about magnets in science and are very eager to share some of our discoveries.
We’ve spent lots of time exploring magnets and have learned that each magnet has two ends that are called poles. When we put like ends together, they repel. When we put unlike ends together, they attract each other.
When we put the magnet up against the iron filings we see some very interesting behaviours. The iron filings are instantly attracted to the magnet, as are many materials made from iron.
We are keen to learn more about magnets over the next couple of weeks!
