This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with the forces of friction and gravity.
Do you know how forces affect speed and going faster? What about forces slowing things down and stopping them? We stop cars and bikes by using friction. When you throw a ball up into the air, what happens? Why does it not just keep going up for ever? Because of gravity! Let’s find out a bit more about how things move, and how they stop through friction and gravity.
