7 Blue have thoroughly enjoyed our theme ‘May the Force be with you’ and learned all about forces.  They made a swing or a moving vehicle and recognised that you can make something start or stop moving when you push or pull it.  They really enjoyed setting up their own investigation to find out the effects friction had on a toy car travelling on different surfaces.  They found out that the smoother surfaces created less friction for the toy car and the rougher surfaces generated more friction.  The children considered how they were going to make the test fair and decided to make sure they started the car at the same point on the ramp and only changed the surface that the car travelled on.
