Summer 2022 - Energy and Forces
Science and technology will be our driving theme this term. Pupils in Cwtch 6 will be asking questions about the world around us and applying scientific knowledge to further understand how our world works. There will be a particular focus on energy and forces, and how these forces impact on our lives. They will understand that forces and energy can be used to describe the behaviour of everything from the smallest building blocks of matter to the motion of planets and stars. They will also realise that understanding forces and energy helps us to predict and control the behaviour of our environment.
