Science in Year 5

In Year 5, we began our science work on forces by thinking about gravity.  We thought about what would happen when we dropped a ball.

After our experiments and discussions, we watched a video which showed Commander David Scott dropping a hammer and a feather on the moon.  What do you think will happen?

We also watched Brian Cox visit the world’s biggest vacuum. A bowling ball and some feathers were dropped. See what happens below.
