Magnetic Maze

Year 2 continued with our Science focus this week – which the children have been absolutely loving!

This week’s activity was all about magnetism. The children had to first draw a maze on the side of a plastic bottle and then guide a ball bearing through the maze using a magnet. This activity provided lots of opportunities for thinking and talking about magnetism as well as why magnets only attract certain materials. We even looked at which metals are magnetic!

All in all another wonderful week spent with the children of Year 2. It’s daunting to think they’ll soon be off to Year 3!

Lots of pictures from the lesson below:
