Science: Magnetic forces

Magnetism is an invisible force, caused by the electrons in the atoms that make up everything around us. A magnet is an object that has a magnetic field (an invisible pattern of magnetism). A magnet attracts or repels other items. The pupils of Year Three learnt by working scientifically in pairs, investigating with magnets and iron filings, they were able to ‘see’ the invisible magnetic force and the results were amazing!
