This term Year One have been exploring push and pull forces and investigating how these forces make objects move and change direction. To really bring the topic to life pupils enjoyed a field trip to Hatherley Park; where it was great to see how learning could be applied in practical, everyday situations outside school.

The children enjoyed playing on the equipment and discussing how they made things move, for example, which forces would you be using when you climb a ladder orplay ona swing? As well as the science aspect of the visit it was fantastic that French teacher – Mrs Nasralla joinedin, which meantpupilscould learn French ‘park’ vocabulary andplay games in French. Everyonehad agreat time, even with the torrentialdownpour at the end of the day!
