England

Key Stage 2
Programme of study: Science
Sc4 Physical processes; Forces and motion
  • 2b: that objects are pulled downwards because of the gravitational attraction between them and the Earth
  • 2c: about friction, including air resistance, as a force that slows moving objects and may prevent objects from starting to move
  • 2e: how to measure forces and identify the direction in which they act
QCA scheme of work primary science unit 6E: Forces in action

Wales

Key Stage 2
Programme of study: Science
Physical processes; Forces and motion
  • 2.1: to measure forces between objects and find out how the forces change in size
  • 2.2: that forces act in particular directions
  • 2.3: that forces can make things speed up, slow down, or change direction
  • 2.5: that the weight of an object is the force of the Earth on the object
  • 2.6: about friction, including air resistance, as a force between surfaces which slows moving objects and may prevent them from starting to move
Northern Ireland

Key Stage 2
Programme of study: Science and technology
Physical processes; Forces and energy
  • c: investigate how forces can affect the movement and shape of objects
  • d: investigate the effect of friction on the movement of objects
Scotland

Environmental studies: 5-14 National guidelines
Science; Energy and forces; Forces and their effects
  • Level C: give some examples of friction
  • Level C: describe air resistance in terms of friction
  • Level D: describe the relationship between the Earth's gravity and the weight of an object
