Are all Metals Magnetic?

25th May 2024

This term, the Year 3 students have been learning about forces and magnets. Through hands-on investigations, they've not only enhanced their understanding but also experienced the thrill of scientific discovery. Having been captivated by the mysterious world of magnets, they were particularly interested in discovering whether all metals are attracted to magnets.

They gathered a variety of metal objects, including paper clips, coins, aluminium foil, copper, nails and keys. They then tested each object with a magnet to see if it would be attracted or not and came to a realisation that common metals like aluminium and copper do not react to magnets.

Scientific investigations such as this help our Year 3 students develop essential scientific skills which include making a prediction, conducting fair tests, collecting data, making observations and drawing conclusions. We look forward to many more exciting adventures in science as we continue to explore the wonders of the natural world
