Class 4 have begun their much anticipated topic on forces!
The classroom has been a hive of activity as groups of children have investigated gravity and friction. Wood blocks, ramps, plastic tracks, string, 2p coins, stop watches and measuring tapes have been in abundance as the class have immersed themselves in their investigations.
They have discovered the importance of accurate measurements, repeating tests, fair testing and careful recording of results. Tables have been drawn, predictions made and conclusions discussed.
Many of the children have chosen to wear a lab coat ( or something resembling one) and they have all looked fantastic. It has certainly added to the air of professionalism as they have worked.
Air and water resistance next!
