Science - forces investigation

Having already learned more about gravity, we put our knowledge to the test by investigating falling paper. We got into science mode and thought carefully about the forces acting upon a falling object.


Most of us predicted that the paper would fall more quickly the smaller it was folded, so we put that hypothesis to the test! Cue lots of excited scientists finding that they'd hypothesised correctly!


Having gained some interesting results, we then made sure we wrote up our investigations really carefully - please have a look at this work in our books during our next open classrooms opportunity...
