This term in science, year 5 are exploring and learning about different types of force and the effects they have on the objects they are acting on.
Pupils should be taught to:
Balanced or unbalanced forces?
Have a look at the pictures of Pusheen the Cat and his friends having fun on the see-saws below. Are the forces balanced or unbalanced? How do you know, can you explain why? Make sure to come and tell Miss Chambers or Miss Ward if you have managed to figure it out!
