Catch of the day!

This term, we have been learning about forces and magnets in Science. As part of this, we have created our very own magnetic fishing game!

We began by making our own magnetic fish which involved drawing, cutting and sewing together lots of colourful fish (with a secret paper clip inside). Then, we constructed our own fishing rods by measuring and then carefully cutting doweling with hack saws. With a glue gun, we attached a small magnet to a piece of string and then glued that to the rod to complete it. To check that our fishing rods worked, we went fishing with them and caught a load of fish as you can see!
