Forces - Year 5 created their own gears using cardboard, paper straws and tape. They used force to create motion.

Planting seeds - Year 5 spent some time weeding the planters in the playground, before planting some seeds. They look forward to caring for their plants and are hoping they will grow successfully!

Forces - the children conducted an experiment to test how much friction different materials would generate. They concluded that sandpaper will generate the most friction when they try to slide a weight down a ramp that is covered in this material. However, cling film will create the least friction.
