Year 5 - Science

This week, as part of their 'Forces' topic, the Year 5 children investigated the effects of water resistance. After discussing their own knowledge and experiences of water resistance, they then went on to test the effect of water resistance on objects of different shapes. Using Plasticine moulded into different shapes, the children observed which shapes travelled more quickly through water, and they discussed why certain shapes took longer to sink. Perhaps they can tell you about this at home!
