Fantastic Forces

Year 3 have started their science work on forces. We have learnt that all movement is due to either a push or a pull. We explored how pushes and pulls changed movement, including how fast we could make something move and in which direction. We also learnt about gravity and the scientist who first discovered the force, Isaac Newton.

We then moved on to investigating friction, which slows down or stops objects moving. We discovered that bumpy, rough surfaces create more friction that smooth ones through our investigation with a ramp and toy car.
