In English this morning we looked at using prefixes. We focused on super-, anti- and auto-. We identified what the prefixes did to the word and then created a range of nouns by adding these prefixes.
Some examples were supermarket, superhero, antifreeze, antibiotic, automatic and automobile.
What words can you think of that use these prefixes?

Science: In science children explored magnets, learnt about magnetic poles and observed how magnets attracted and repelled. They initially predicted what will happen when north pole of one magnet and north pole of another magnet are brought closer – whether they will attract or repel. They filled their prediction in the table given below. After that they conducted the experiment to find out if their predictions were correct.
Conclusion: Like magnetic poles repel and unlike magnetic poles attract!
