This term’s Science day for Year 5 was all about Forces. They carried out investigations to test their theories about air resistance by running across the top playground, then repeating it holding a large piece of cardboard and a third time with a large plastic lid. Some of the tests didn’t give quite the results they were expecting but the children were able to come up with reasons for this.
The afternoon was a friction investigation using ramps with various coverings and toy cars. The children learnt all about fair testing, controls and variables as well as how to independently record an investigation.
Well done, Year 5 – you showed resilience throughout the day as well as excellent behaviour.
