Forces and Magnets

England, Scotland, Wales


What impact do forces have on different things? Can we predict how an object will react to a particular force? How do magnets respond to different metals and with one another? Combine drama, science and physical education in this cross-curricular movement extravaganza. In this workshop we offer pupils a chance to explore push / pull forces, and look specifically at gravity, resistance, floating, sinking and magnets.

Your class will…

  • Observe, predict, test and record how different objects move in response to a force.
  • Use their bodies to demonstrate how different forces and magnets affect one another.
  • Identify how magnets are used in everyday objects.
  • Have a great day!

One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!
