In Year 4, our science topic is magnets and we have been investigating the strength of magnets in our lessons. We were inspired by the story of the princess and the pea! We carried out an experiment using a paper clip, a bar magnet and a number of pieces of paper. We tested the strength of a bar magnet by testing how many sheets of paper the magnet could pick up with the paperclip. We found the magnet was much stronger than we predicted it would be! It picked up over 30 pieces of paper!
