Year 3 Science Medium-Term Plan – Forces and Magnets

What's included?

Three-page medium term plan PDF, plus accompanying worksheets and Powerpoints

Key Stage



Year 3


This six-week series of lessons focuses on giving Y3 children an understanding of forces and magnets, and what makes objects move and how.

Plan author Abby King has devised a range of activities for effective and engaging learning using different materials and the character Traction Man from the book of the same name by Mini Grey.

We’ve produced a range of free resources to make delivery of this medium-term plan as easy as possible. Both the plan and the resources are included in this download.

Abby King has worked in KS1 and 2 and currently teaches at an inner-city primary school in Birmingham. Find her at and follow on Twitter at @abbykingwrites.
