Lesson 2 – 9/1/2007
It takes a push or a pull to start something moving. We found out that the heavier an object is, the bigger the push or pull (the force) is needed to start it moving, and once it is moving, the bigger the push or pull is needed to stop it.
We experimented with different sized marbles in a box lid taped to a skateboard.

Welcome to our new forces blog – this will detail what and how we are learning about different forces, over the next five weeks.
Lesson 1 – 8/1/2007
Today we had a ‘thought shower’ to find out what we, as a class, already knew about forces. It turned out that between us we knew quite a lot. Following on from this we made up a list of ten questions about forces that we didn’t know the answer to. We hope, during the course of the five weeks, to answer these questions.
We have put this list on our class wall and finding out the answers to these ten questions wil be our targets for this topic. Mr Cain will be using these targets to make our personal learning plans.
School re-opens Monday January 8th
P6 did a Christmas webquest. A webquest is a quiz on the internet it is just like a cyberhunt. We had to answer 16 questions some were quite easy and others were quite challenging. We had about 30 minutes to do it. If you got stuck you had a weblink to help you get the answer. We all thought that it was really good and a good way to get us into the festive season!!

Ms Lewis saw an idea on Sandaig Primary School blog for creating Christmas stars. We listened to the children’s instructions using Microsoft Word and created some of our own.
