We are really enjoying getting more hands on with science, this half term, after moving onto forces. Our main science objective is:
– explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object
Last week, we looked at what made some objects fall slower or quicker than other objects. The children picked two objects and challenged them to race!
We then linked what we knew about gravity to why one fell at a faster pace than another. Even more excitingly, we are going to create and make our own parachutes over the next two lessons. Next week, we will be setting our parachutes free over the balcony! More on this later.
