As part of our topic 'Material World' We have been investigating what materials are magnetic. We discussed what items we might find on the playground that could be magnetic.

We then made a prediction as to whether it would be magnetic or not then went out with our bar magnets to see if we had made the correct prediction.

We had lots of fun doing this activity!
