Scientists at work! – Forces, forces and more forces!

December 12, 2014

This term Year 4 put on their scientists caps and tested how friction affects how objects move. The children had to carry out a number of experiments, but first they had to write their plans, ask their questions, decide which variables to change or not and make predictions. Then it was time to work; shoes off and hands on! The children checked how cars move in different surfaces, who was wearing the shoes with most grip, and how friction affected different objects. It was a great week of discoveries and as per normal in Year 4 they did a great job!
