Water Resistance

As part of our work on forces we carried out an experiment to understand more about how water resistance reacts to different shaped objects.

 

 

Forces in 5NJ

Autumn 2 is all about forces.

Last week we looked at Isaac Newton and his discovery of gravity. We measured a variety of objects with a newton meter to investigate the strength of force acting on an object.

This week we studied how air resistance affects an object. Ask us to tell you what we did.

 

 

 

Y5 and 6 Athletics Tournament

 

Today we enetered an athletics tournament at Broadway sports centre. We competed in a wide range of events including: an obstacle relay, relay races, a paarlauf, chest push, standing long jump, standing triple jump, vertical jump, soft javelin and the speed bounce.

We all had a fantastic morning and enjoyed competing in the range of activities. Out of the eleven schools who attended we came fifth overall. Well done to everyone who took part.

 

Year 5/6 Halloween Disco

Year 5 and 6 children really enjoyed their Halloween disco this evening. We played lots of games and enjoyed dancing to Halloween songs.

 

Reversible or irreversible?

Over the last couple of weeks we have discovered the difference between reversible and irreversible changes.
We made a mixture, then separated the components by magnetism, filtration, sieving and evaporation.

 

 

 

Then we melted chocolate and made it solid again.

We created chemical reactions by mixing bicarbonate of soda. Ask us what was formed during the reaction.

 

In addition, we added vinegar to warm milk. Can you believe we actually made a plastic?!
