The children could explain that the ball with a parachute went slower because of the air underneath and could make predictions about which ball would travel faster down the slide. The children tested if the ball […]

Today in science we made wobbly men we needed to use a pushing force to lay them down and then gravity made them return to their starting position. We had a race with our wobbly men using the blowing force to move them.  We have also made sculptures from clay using the pushing and pulling […]
