In PE with Commando Joe we took part in a tug of war tournament. We linked it to our Science learning and changed some of the variables to see what made the biggest difference.
We looked at the part that friction plays with our feet and the floor, as well as the rope on our hands. We noticed how hot our hands were after the rope had slid though them!
We tried different combinations, including putting taller r shorter people at the front and mixing up the boys and girls teams. We found that the biggest difference was teamwork! Those who listened to each other and pulled together at the same time won!
