Fantastic Forces!

In Science this week, we have been investigating forces and how they affect objects.  We have learnt how they can sometimes be non - contact forces such as magnetism and sometimes contact forces such as friction.  In the photographs below, 3B were investigating how the force of friction can change depending on the surfaces involved.  We discussed and designed a fair test to see if our predictions about rough and smooth surfaces were correct.  

Home Learning idea:  Look for forces acting on objects around your home.  Could you design a fair test to investigate how these forces act on objects or change depending on the conditions?
