Thanks to the glorious Shetland weather, we were able to do all our planned activities today! We started off at the Boddam play park to do an experiment on forces. Then, in groups, we had to show forces at work using the play equipment. After some time inside looking at Electricity with Mr Rose, it was back outside to do a spot of reading before we joined the rest of the school on our whole school walk. A full day of learning and fresh air!
We enjoyed another visit from Mr Rose on Thursday 11th May. He spoke to us all about magnets and magnetism and the “invisible” force they use to attract certain types of metals. We learned the word, “repel” and used the magnets to test out how this felt. We had fun working with our partners and testing objects around the class.
Today, we were glad to see Mr Rose back in class to help us learn all about Forces. We have been learning that forces are all around us, all the time. We have been talking about gravity and the forces that we can apply to objects to make them move and change. We are looking forward to planning, testing and writing up our own experiment soon.
