I put a sign on the door prompting kids to push close to the hinge when coming in and then later got them to discuss what they found. Content: summary of key terms, principle of moments, starter puzzle (to discuss): 'Can Olive Oyl lift the rock?', Shrek and friends on a seesaw (I had a demo seesaw with plasticine Shrek characters and I went through investigation as a demo with the whole class, filling in the table and then introducing the equation), calculations including starter puzzle. Also contains homework and another yoyo puzzle.
