Science Subject Overview
In Science we have been studying forces. Firstly, we looked at the force of gravity. We learned that gravity is a force that pulls objects towards the centre of the Earth. We investigated the effects of gravity by dropping meteorites (spheres of different size and mass) onto Earth (a tray filled with flour) and measuring the depth and diameter of the craters. We have begun to investigate the effects of air resistance by making parachutes of different sizes and timing how long they take to drop.
