Science Outdoors

Class 3 took their Science outdoors on Friday afternoon in our new outdoor garden area. Despite the garden not being finished, Class 3 took advantage of the beautiful weather and fantastic area to investigate 'how objects travel on different surfaces'. We have just started a new unit on Forces and Magnets and the children wanted to find out if the type of surface effects how something moved. We used our environment to test the movement of small vehicles on mud, logs, grass, metal, plastic and concrete. Class 3 loved using the new area and can't wait to get back out there in the near future.
