Four primary teachers present their Great Lesson Ideas for teaching forces and motion in science. Year 2 teacher, Jess Scott, explains pushes and pulls, inspiring her class to model a Big Bad Wolf. Working in pairs, one describes which forces they are using as the other models. Deputy, Tony Davies, introduces friction in the 'jelly chopsticks&' race and Year 5 teacher, Kate Mottram, challenges her class to investigate which track will be best for rocket balloons to fly down, covering forces and friction. Finally, an idea from David Aston, using paper helicopters.
