Pupils will investigate the exciting science of forces in a series of fun and engaging experiments. They will discover magnetism and electricity and realise that these forces produce more familiar effects such as pushes and pulls, even if they seem more complicated to begin with. They will use their new found knowledge to predict the results of various experiments and even help them find genuine meteorites.
I have collaborated in investigations to compare magnetic, electrostatic and gravitational forces and have explored their practical applications.
By investigating forces on toys and other objects, I can predict the effect on the shape or motion of objects.
Representing my class, school and/or wider community encourages my self-worth and confidence and allows me to contribute to and participate in society.
When I engage with others, I can respond in ways appropriate to my role, show that I value others' contributions and use these to build on thinking.
I can show my understanding of what I listen to or watch by responding to literal, inferential, evaluative and other types of questions, and by asking different kinds of questions of my own.
