The Force Awakens!

Forces of Nature!

Our new topic this term is called Forces of Nature! We will be looking at forces in Science, focussing on magnets and the magnetic field. We will also be looking at climate change and the unusual weather we have been experiencing lately across the world!

 

What do you already know about weather and the issues around climate at the moment? What can you find out?

    Hi Victoria,

    Yes, in 2006 a tornado hit North London. It caused damage to properties and injured 6 people!

  9. How big was that tornado?

  10. Anna Francis says:

    The tornado was big, it lasted for less than a minute but caused a lot of damage in this time! Although a tornado is not that unusual, the amount of damage it caused is! The last tornado which caused that much damage (millions of pounds worth) in London was in 1954.

  11. anna.francis says:

    Good question Stephan! What do you guys think, what is the most powerful force of nature in regards to weather and why?

  12. I think that the most powerful Force of Nature is a tsunami because it destroys almost everything in its path, and drowns so many people.

  13. Earthquakes happen when plates, or rocks, within the Earth suddenly break or shift under stress, sending shock waves rippling

  14. in croatia there was a flood and my grandparents were there but they survived.

  15. In Croatia there was a flood and my grandparents were there but they survived

  16. Harry Ugbah says:

    Extreme weather is an unusual weather such as Tsunamis or a Hurricane or a Tornado. A Tsunami can knock down buildings and animals can sense when they are coming. A hurricane is not that big but it can still knock down trees.A volcano is very dangerous because people can get killed because in a volcano there is lava. A tornado is a really bad thing you can get blown every where and also it can knock down buildings and it can also kill people.

  17. Just recently Melbourne experienced floods, hail stones and high winds and there are warnings of very dangerous severe thunderstorms to come.

  18. the biggest tornado is 219mi 352km.
