Year 5 Forces Knowledge Organisers!

This clear, detailed and visually-appealing resource offers a complete reference point for Year 5 children, teachers and parents covering knowledge relating to ‘Forces’, as a part of their science learning. It contains comprehensive sections on:

What you should already know (from prior learning);
Definition of Forces;
Machines and Mechanisms;
Types of Machines and Mechanisms;
Key Vocabulary.

The content is fully aligned with the NC expectations for Year 5 children relating to ‘Forces’:
-explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of
gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object;
-identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces;
-recognise that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a
smaller force to have a greater effect.

The resource is designed to be printed onto A3, and is provided as both a PDF and a Word version (so that you can edit if you want to). All images used are licensed for commercial use and are cited on a separate document (included).
