Air Resistance Investigations

By | February 8th, 2019|Outdoor Learning, Science, Year 5 2018-19|

Year 5 have had a lot of fun testing out their thinking and understanding about air resistance.  They completed well developed plans and recorded their data accurately on a table.  The children used timers, measuring wheels and tested re-tested to ensure the whole process was fair.  It was exhausting for the testers however we can let you […]

Our Science topic is Forces. 

On Monday, we were introduced to the word ‘forces’ and made predictions about what it meant. We heard all sorts of responses – from being to do with soldiers, to a type of yoghurt…!

We then learnt that a force was a push or pull to make things move.

We explored forces in the […]

Reversible and irreversible changes

By | November 6th, 2018|Science, Year 5 2018-19|

Today the year 5 scientists created an experiment based on their thinking about reversible and irreversible changes. Although they have just begun this subject, year 5 already had some good ideas about the changes that might occur.  They had 4 substances including oil, water, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda and had to devise an experiment […]
