Working Scientifically

 

 

 

 

Compare how things move on different surfaces (friction)

 

Know how magnets attract/ repel some materials (two pole +/-) and make predictions

 

Know that some forces need contact whereas magnetic forces can act at a distance

 

Compare and group magnetic/ non-magnetic materials

 

 

Know and explain gravity

 

Identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction

 

Recognise that some mechanisms (gears, leavers, pulleys and springs) allow a smaller force to have a greater effect
