In science this half term, year 5 have been looking at forces. As part of this topic, the children in 5S made their own parachutes in different sizes and tested the effects of air resistance. We tried our very best to keep the test as fair as possible, but we’re not quite ready to jump out of a plane with them just yet! (25.11.16)
