Science: Push and Pull

Year 2 Room 5

The Room 5 students are exploring the forces of push and pull, and linking science with literacy. Through investigations, students observe and gather evidence about how these forces act in air and water, and on the ground. Students identify the effect of the pull of gravity and learn that both air and water can “push”.

The literacy focuses are:

  • Tables
  • Science journals
  • Word walls
  • Force-arrow diagrams
  • Factual texts
  • Drawings

Some fun books we have read include Who Sank the Boat? and Mr Archimedes Bath.

Children are encouraged to share their Science Journals with their parents and family, and maybe conduct their own experiments at home.
