This website has been created by Year 4 teacher to teacher this unit of work. It covers force and motion, friction (helpful and unhelpful) and gravity. It has lots of really fantastic video resources. Be warned the teachers have indicated on their website that they are happy to share their website but they do open and close pages as they use them with their own students so you may want to get a good look at it early on and make your own links to resources they share in case they close the page.
