# Spring 1 Week 5

5 White have had a great albeit busy week of learning. We have gained in all areas of the curriculum and had some great fun along the way. I am immensely proud of the children’s efforts thus far in Spring term 1. Science has been a real highlight this week, the children have built there own pulley machines in class to display their understanding of forces. The children’s plans and ideas were both individual and amazing.

Fantastic week 5 White keep up the good work.

We use pulleys to move or lift heavy things.
If we incorporate more pulleys and ropes then it will be easier but you will have to pull further.

1.we use pulleys to move heavy things
2. if we add pulleys and ropes we will hat to move futher

3. Samanta V.

We used pulleys for lifting up things and they can be used with heavy objects.
If u incorporate more and more, it will be easier to push them.

A pulley is a wheel that carries a flexible rope, cord, cable, chain, or belt on its rim. Pulleys are used singly or in combination to transmit energy and motion. Pulleys with grooved rims are called sheaves.
and
Pulleys are made by looping a rope over one or more wheels. They are often used to lift heavy objects: pulling down on one end of the rope creates an upward pull at the other end. … Using two wheels means you can lift something twice as heavy using the same force.

Pulleys are things that help us move things easily. If we incorporate, more ropes and pulleys it will be easier but we will have to move futher.

What do we use pulley for?
Pulley helps us by changing the direction of the force we use to lift an object. for example :- it’s easier for you to pull up on a rope or pull down on a rope.

Can you explain what happens if we incorporate more pulleys and ropes?
A single pulley makes things more easier by changing the direction of the pull or force applied. For example:- When a person uses two or more pulleys in a system, then the system also multiples the force applied besides changing its direction.

We use pulleys to make things easier to pull.If we add more ropes and pulleys it will make it more easier but we have to travel more.

1. Pulleys are made by looping a rope over one or more wheels. They are often used to lift heavy objects.

2. pulleys decreases the amount of force necessary to move an object by increasing the amount of rope used to raise the object.

I have done english but the overview said the maths equations were on the blog I cant find it so if anyteacher can put one up that would be very appreciated.
