This week in year 3 the children have been amazed by the concept of forces and friction. The children have learnt that a force can make an object speed up, slow down, remain in place, or change shape. We discussed examples of pulling and pushing forces and showed the direction of the force by drawing arrows.
We have also started to discuss the importance of friction, being a grip that helps to make our world work. We moved objects on different surfaces to investigate how to make friction less or more powerful.
