This year we have started F.I.T better known as Friday Inquiry Teams. We personally have loved it and we have already conducted lots of fun experiments with the year 3 students. For example we used tin cans to mimic a penguin huddle and we used skateboards to learn more about friction. On Friday the 2nd of June we had a visitor. The visitor was scientist, an engineer called Mrs B. She was very nice and taught us a lot, she showed us all the forces eg. Air/wind, water, friction and some interesting stuff about magnets.For the first experiment we used a straw to blow objects across the table and we had to record which ones were the fastest and which one was the slowest. This experiment showed the force of air.
Another experiment we did involved magnets and a car. In this experiment we used the magnets to move the car and this demonstrated the force of magnitude. Altogether year 3 and year 4 really enjoyed this amazing opportunity. We are really thankful for her coming and for Mrs M Mrs T Miss C and Mrs M for organising this.
