Magnetic power

Form 4 have been testing the strength of magnets - and counting paper clips!

Form 4 thoroughly enjoyed Book Week. They took part in the World Book day quiz on Monday in their houses and showed a really good knowledge of a range of books. On Thursday, the highlight of the week arrived when they dressed up as their favourite book characters. They all had great fun guessing who was who and explaining why they'd chosen their particular character.

In Humanities, they were given the challenge to work out which was the most published book of all time. They were very surprised to discover it was the Bible, and then learnt lots of interesting facts about it.

Science saw the class continue their work on magnets. This week, the children considered how to test the strength of a magnet. Groups using smaller paper clips found they had lots of counting to do!.
