25 Nov What’s happening in Year 5 – Week 4
Year 5 have been enjoying learning about forces in Science. This week, we focussed on the force of air resistance. We learnt that air resistance is a pushing force and the greater the surface area, the greater the air resistance on an object. Year 5 tested this hypothesis by making egg parachutes, utilising their scientific knowledge practically to try and keep the egg from cracking when they dropped their parachute. We had lots of fun using different materials to make our egg parachutes and two teams prevented their eggs from cracking!
Also this week, Krishaun and Hezikiah have done some fantastic maths work learning how to multiply by using arrays and repeated addition.
