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.

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 […]
