Mrs Kate Mills from Christ the King School came in to Year 3 for a workshop on "Forces" and "Investigating Friction and Air Resistance"
We looked at different surfaces like the soles of our shoes, wood, rubber and metal surfaces and used force meters to measure the force to move objects over different surfaces.
We talked about the force of gravity pulling down. If we don't want to be pulled down we need a force the other way.
We designed and made parachutes to help our plastic soldiers fall to the floor the slowest. We used stop watches to measure the time it took for the parachutes to fall.
