A compilation of pushes and pulls. A variety of 'real life' examples are used, including jumping on a springy toy in a playground or hitting a ball. Note: There is no narration in this clip.

This clip compilation could be used as an introduction to a lesson exploring forces as pushes or pulls. The children could be asked to watch the clip and remember as many examples of pushes and pulls as possible, sorting them into two distinct groups. Can they add any more examples to their lists? Equally, the clip could be used as a plenary after the children have carried out a sorting activity - grouping images into pushes and pulls. As the clip plays, pupils could call out "push" or "pull" for each example shown or hold up a card with the correct heading to show their understanding.
