Magnet Magic

We had lots of fun exploring magnets in science. First we made predictions about which materials were magnetic but we were then surprised to find that not all metals are magnetic.

Next we looked at how two magnets stick together but that they push away from each other if they have the same end pointing towards each other.

Finally, we explored this using a magnetic swing which behaved in some very strange ways as it danced around between the other magnets.

Umberslade farm

IMG_4843 IMG_4841 IMG_4840 Nursery had a wonderful time at the farm today. First of all we met Santa which was really exciting as we got to whisper our Christmas wishes to him before getting changed into costumes to tell the story of baby Jesus being born. After that we got to see and feed the different farm animals and their babies. Some of us were really brave and were able to let a chick balance on our heads too.
