Exploring Magnets and Gravity

As part of our Unit of Inquiry, Swings and Roundabouts, Year 2 is learning all about different forces.  We had a fantastic time exploring magnets and even had a competition as to whose magnet could hold the most paperclips.  The record was seven!

In learning about Forces, we are also learning about Sir Isaac Newton’s research and observations about gravity.  We all know how gravity works, but we are learning just how difficult it can be to explain this.
