"Forces and Motion - Year1 and 2" iis a KS1 resource that is specifically designed for use with an Interactive Whiteboard. In addition to presenting the basic properties and behavior of forces there are advanced levels that present concepts and simulations of specific applications that are especially suited for teaching scientifically "Able and Gifted" children. It provides an accessible knowledge base for teachers who are not scientifically predisposed.

The presentation makes learning about the way we understand movement and our concept of forces simple and interesting.

The quality of the production, including original audio tracks, will be immediately apparent and will help hold the attention of the class. The interactive graphical nature of the resource allows concepts and processes, which would be difficult to demonstrate in reality, to be presented in a safe environment with the added benefit of being able to pause them to discuss possible outcomes with the whole class.

Features include interactive screens: move an aircraft in all directions; place movement descriptions against animated objects; push and pull objects; start and stop a train with hard and soft pushes and pulls; change the speed of a water wheel by altering the water level; stretch, squash, bend and twist a bar; change the amount of "Push" and "Brake" force acting on a train to move it; change the degree of a slope that a train is rolling down; place a ball on a slope and let it roll down to predict and record the results and more.

Each section includes a basic and advanced screen, allowing the presentation to be delivered to audiences of diverse abilities; the basic screen is uncluttered and simple, the advanced screen is more complex and adds much more detail about the subject.

The presentation can be run full screen or optionally in it's own window. Although primarily intended for delivery using an interactive whiteboard the production can also be used individually by the students on PC's or laptops.

  • Supports Units 1E and 2E of Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum
  • Structured model: establishes the concept of forces and their attributes in stages
  • Multi-level model: basic and advanced screens that can be switched between to suit the abilities of  the audience. The basic screen is uncluttered and the advanced screen introduces more complex concepts like force arrows
  • Can be used for SATs revision by Year 6
  • Includes a review of the points learned
  • Pay using eLearning credits
  • Can be presented using an interactive whiteboard
  • Superb quality graphics and animations
  • Includes interactive demonstrations that can be stopped to discuss or predict possible outcomes etc.
  • Includes cross references to other Science units and literacy
Science Unit 1E specific coverage
  • Discuss and describe how common objects move by using an interactive animated model and a quiz
  • Pulls and Pushes are forces that work in straight lines
  • Demonstrate the action of pushing and pulling and some common objects. Establish the "opposite" directional relationship between pulls and pushes
  • Forces have qualities: size and direction
  • Pulling and pushing harder makes objects travel further and faster
  • Moving objects can be dangerous
  • Natural forces can cause movement
Science Unit 2E specific coverage
  • Forces can be used to change the shape of an object
  • Demonstrate various ways to change an object
  • Forces can change the speed of an object
  • Friction and gravity are natural forces that affect an objects speed
  • A slope can affect the speed of an object and the distance it travels
  • Results about the distance an object moves can be predicted and collected for later use as data for a graph
Literacy cross reference
  • Poems: "When the wind blows" and "Over the top" about forces, movement and technology
