This week we investigated which forces need contact between two objects. We found that many contact forces were in action on the playground. Non-contact forces, like magnetic force, can act at a distance.
This week, we have been getting creative as poets and artists. We gathered inspiration for our poems from 'Someone', by Robert Louis Stevenson. Using paint on polystyrene tiles, we created bold prints to accompany our poems.
