A Science afternoon in Reception

A Science afternoon in Reception

Reception enjoyed an afternoon working with magnets.

They explored different materials and objects to see which are magnetic.

“We need metal things to make it stick.”

“This plastic box doesn’t lift up, it isn’t magnetic.”

The children also had fun designing and making their own marble runs.


They worked together and tested their marble run and made adjustments when necessary.

“We are trying to get the marble from one end to another.”

“If it doesn’t work then we will have to change it!”

“If we lift it higher the marble goes faster!”


Some great team work and fantastic marble runs made!
