Machine-Building by Class 3, May 2017

The Class 3 children learnt about different types of force such as gravity, air resistance, friction and upthrust during their science week.  They also looked at the workings of simple machines which use levers, springs, gears and pulleys.  They then made their own simple machines using a variety of different mechanisms and demonstrated them to the rest of the pupils.  Some, such as Sophie's rubber-band-powered car transporting a Sylvanian family, worked really well!
