01 Dec What’s happening in Year 5 – Week 5
This week has been busy in Year 5!
We have been creating our Christmas chandelier, using paper and glitter to represent the star that was followed by the wise men to Bethlehem.
In science this half term we have been learning about forces. This week we planned and executed an experiment to measure the frictional force between our shoes and various surfaces. We used force meters to measure friction in Newtons and discovered that a greater force was needed to slide the shoe over the carpet, which tells us that there is more friction between the shoe and the carpet than other surfaces.
