From Teachers TV, this video shows four examples of lessons on forces and motion that are suitable for primary school children. Part of the Great Lessons Ideas series, it contains these ideas for lessons: Year Two teacher Jess Scott demonstrates how to teach the forces of pushing and pulling by inspiring her class to create a model of the 'big bad wolf' from clay. The children work in pairs - one describes the forces they are using as the other performs the motion. Year Five teacher Katherine Mottram teaches her class about forces, friction and fair testing as she challenges them to investigate which track will be best for their rocket balloons to fly down. Deputy Headteacher Tony Davies explains an intriguing way to introduce friction, with the jelly and chopsticks race. Teacher David Aston explains force by using paper helicopters with his combined Year Five-Six class.
