This week we started our new Science unit looking at Forces. We started by discussing what a force was and investogated how forces effected everyday objects such as blue tack and toy cars. We then discussed how forces can be measured using a Newton metre. We finished by carrying out a simple experiment looking at how many Newtons it took to; pull up a zip, pick up an object and pull and object across the table. The children were able to use lots of scientific vocabulary when explaining what was happening. A super start to the new term!
I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your lovely Christmas gifts. I hope you have all had a lovely break and are looking forward to all the exciting things 2018 is sure to bring.
