This week in science we’ve investigated what friction is and what it does. We tested ice cubes on different surfaces in our classroom and found that the ice cube travelled further on smoother surfaces.
We also let a toy car go down ramps with different materials on. We found that the rougher the material the more friction there was so the longer it took the car to go down the ramp!
We’ve had a fantastic first term swimming! We’ve all improved a lot in a very short space of time.
Some children have achieved badges. If you would like to buy your child’s badge and certificate then please bring £2.75 to purchase them next term. Alternatively, you can buy them directly from the Meridian Leisure Centre. A full list of badges can be seen in the school’s sports blog.
Remember to bring your swimming things tomorrow!
