Today Year 1 went to Swalwell Park to explore what a force was. We learnt three new words ‘movement, direction, force’ and used these to help us explain how we played on the different equipment. We had to pull ourselves up the rope, push ourselves down the slide, ask a friend to push us on the swing and pulled the zip wire along. We found out that forces can be different sizes and this effects how far something goes. Jack then wowed us all by telling us that something would “go further if you put more energy in”, how fantastic! We now all know that a force makes objects move in a particular direction and a push or pull are a type of force.
