Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Look... it's a flying fish!

This week, we started our exciting new Science topic of 'Forces'. During our science lesson we explored the three different forces that make an object move.

'To open Henry's water bottle, you need to twist it' - Harry

'We push our chairs under the table' - Ekam

'We have to pull our trays out to get our books' - Teddie

Moving on from forces, we then conducted an experiment. We wanted to investigate which material would fall to the ground the fastest. We wrote down our hypothesis (our guess) to check if we were correct after the experiment. To keep the test fair, we used the same amount of each material and dropped it from the same height.

   

From our results we noticed that card fell to the ground the fastest. Tissue paper took the longest to reach the floor. We took time to discuss why card was the quickest and check if our hypothesis was correct.

Why do you think that card fell to the ground the fastest ?
