This week the children have been learning about air resistance. They conducted an investigation to answer the question, ‘How does the size of a parachute affect the speed at which it falls to the ground?’. In place of a parachute the children used three different sizes of cupcake cases and dropped these from a height. They measured the time it took to fall with a stopwatch.
The children concluded that the wider the cupcake case, the slower it fell. This was because of the air resistance acting on a larger surface area.
Cedar class held their collective worship yesterday. They sang a beautiful rendition of Living and Learning and their focus was on determination.
Thank you to everyone who donated bottles for tomorrow’s Autumn Fayre! Thank you also to everyone involved in organising the event.
Have a lovely weekend! 🌞
