Pupils made a science video describing and explaining how the theories of our solar system has evolved from early human life to the current model (21st Century).

Our Top Secret Mission
Top secret mission in progress
We continued our recent work on forces by looking at friction. We tested a range of footwear using a carpet-covered ramp and a force meter to investigate the ways in which friction works. The grip on the soles of our shoes created varying amounts of friction, and we discussed the ways in which we would create the perfect footwear for a top secret agent to use when chasing the baddies. We'd love to tell you more about this, but unfortunately our results are top secret.
Investigating Water Resistance
To investigate the effects of forces, including air resistance, Year 5 designed and made parachutes. We investigated a number of variables, including material, shape and height of the drop. Pupils made predictions about the effect of each variable on air resistance and we filmed our results.

Investigating Air Resistance
We proved Galileo correct!
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
