Term 2 has been a busy and exciting time for exploring Physics. Classes have learnt that engineers and scientists use their knowledge of forces and motion to design things. Year 1's have explored light and sound through a variety of experiments and have learnt all about invisible sound vibrations and bending light through prisms to make rainbows.
Year 3's have made discoveries that metal materials conduct heat better than plastic and are therefore better for melting chocolate. Who doesn't love a chocolate fondue experiment? Yum!! All students have focused on developing their scientific language to describe forces on moving objects. (Paper helicopters, aeroplanes, hoop gliders, kites, physics toys, marble runs) It has been so rewarding observing students using scientific vocabulary in their speaking and writing.
