Class News: 

 

We had great fun last week when we had a surprise PE session where we learnt fencing! We had a go at different footwork 1 and a 1, 2 and then we got to dress up in the vest and masks to have a go using plastic swords to see if we can score points by jabbing our partner!

 

We also showed great team work skills when we worked as groups to present information about the biomes in Russia.

They will learn that some metals, but not all, are magnetic and that all non-metals are non-magnetic. They will learn that magnets have two poles and that two magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing.
