What a fantastic afternoon in Year 3! The children created their own Formula 1 inspired cars and considered how the shape and design of it could effect its performance.

This afternoon, Year 3 looked at something called 'inertia'. They found out that this was something founded by Sir Isaac Newton and he stated that, 'an object will remain at rest or move at a constant speed until it is acted on by an unbalanced force.' They then created different size spinners to see if that made a difference to the duration of its spin. They discovered that there were too many unbalanced forces acting on their spinners for them to have a large moment of inertia.
