Forces and motion has been our main science topic in Year 2 for this term. We have been looking at how different factors can influence how far or how fast an object can move. The children designed an experiment to see how forces and motion work to keep a toy car moving. We built a ramp, and then tested different cars to see how far they could travel. We were interested to find out if cars of a different weight or size could travel further. We also experimented with the surface that the cars were travelling along. You can listen to the results of the Year 2 science experiment being explained in the podcast below.
