A NEW SCIENCE TOPIC: PHYSICS
We started a new science topic today (probably my least favourite one, not that I told them that!) PHYSIC'S :) We started with a general description of what was included in this topic as its not self-explanatory. And then as a gentle warm up to the topic, the kids undertook some worksheets on motion and energy types. I found some great worksheets for science from TLS Books and the website is definitely worth taking a look at for resources. The worksheets were aimed at just providing them with a familiarity at some of the common words used in physic's. This is where I think it is hard for kids to grasp on to physic's because its like learning a new language. Anyway, they totally conquered the tasks today and we now know more about motion in particular!
