Push or Pull? Exploring forces in action!

In Science, our topic this half-term is: Forces and Magnets.  Children were introduced to Push and Pull.  They used their understanding of these simple forces to classify and sort everyday actions and activities.  Children were encouraged to act out some of the more complex actions and activities to help them identify push or pull forces at work.  At the end of the lesson, children were challenged to work together to create a freeze frame tableau of actions for their peers to guess: naming the activity and the force(s) at work and explaining their ideas using key scientific vocabulary.
