Our Science topic is Forces.
On Monday, we were introduced to the word ‘forces’ and made predictions about what it meant. We heard all sorts of responses – from being to do with soldiers, to a type of yoghurt…!
We then learnt that a force was a push or pull to make things move.
We explored forces in the playground using bikes, balls, skipping ropes and much more. We discussed forces being balanced and unbalanced and how an unbalanced forces make things move.
We then came back to the classroom to design our own experiments based on forces with the resources on our tables – a piece of paper, an elastic band, a metre stick, a tennis ball, a spring balance and a toy car. We have designed our very own experiments in groups, ready to test later this week!
