The children have started to look at forces in Science this week. Hopefully they can tell you what a force is, how we define the term and talk about balanced and unbalanced forces. We will be exploring gravity and wind resistance too and designing a fair test experiment to work out the best design for a parachute.  

Science 07.10.20

Today the children continued to look at wind resistance and how the surface area of a shape effects the time it takes to drop to the ground. They found that the scrunched up piece of paper travelled quicker than the flat paper due to wind resistance.

See if you can work out what we did from these pictures!
