Year 6 got to play with toy cars last week when they investigated friction. They were testing a variety of materials on a sloping tile to see which needed a steeper slope to run on. We found corrugated card and bubble wrap had more friction than non slip mats. So next time you’re in your caravan trying to stop your plates sliding around, you know what to use!
Here are Emily and Karan and Bertie in the middle of their experiment.
