Term 1

We have had a really busy term and have been learning lots of new things. Below are a few of the highlights.

Magnetism

Our science topic was all about magnetism.  We explored the strength of magnets and looked at what materials are magnetic.  We looked at how magnets are used in everyday life and had great fun magnet racing!

We have also been playing team games to develop our co-operation skills.
