Year 5 Science Morning: Forces

Year 5 finished off their half term Forces topic with a morning filled with forces investigations. They made parachutes and investigated the effect of canopy size, canopy material, string length and the weight attached to the parachute, the effects of streamlining by pulling boats with different shaped fronts through water, the relationship between upthrust and surface area, and explored friction by measuring the force required to pull weighted baskets over different surfaces and the effect, on moving objects, of rolling them down slopes at different heights. So much fantastic science learning came out of the investigations, as well as lots of opportunities to apply maths and collaboration skills.

Well done Year 5!
