Class 4 have worked fantastically this afternoon to recall their knowledge of their forces topic with Mrs Woolley. They have been discussing a range of forces and are able to draw force diagrams to include, friction, air resistance, weight and gravity. This lead to a very fun and practical experiment of how to create hovercraft. The children worked collaboratively to build them and then raced them whilst discussing which were good designs. They worked scientifically by discussing their plan and predictions prior to building their designs. Additionally they were able to record their data by measuring the distance, time and calculate speed of each hovercraft.
A very practical end to their science unit they have covered this term for the children to apply and really embed their knowledge and understanding of forces within the world around us.
