Year 5 - Water Resistance Investigation

As part of this term's science topic on forces, the children in Year 5 investigated the effect of shape on water resistance.


The children created different shapes in plasticine (a ball, a pancake and a sausage) and dropped them into cylinders of water, observing how they travelled to the bottom.


They all did a fantastic job, impressing us with their scientific knowledge.
