• observing qualitatively how speed is affected by the size of a force
  • exploring how non-contact forces are similar to contact forces in terms of objects pushing and pulling another object
  • comparing and contrasting the effect of friction on different surfaces, such as tyres and shoes on a range of surfaces
  • investigating the effect of forces on the behaviour of an object through actions such as throwing, dropping, bouncing and rolling
  • exploring the forces of attraction and repulsion between magnets
