Force moves the dragon

Checking where the dragon moved to….

Newsletter 16.11.18

Swan class carried out a science experiment into forces this week. Sending two spheres down a ruler from increasing heights to determine the effect of the two different masses on a paper dragon. Pupils had to take accurate measurements and write these into a table.

The results showed how mass and height affect acceleration and therefore how far our dragons moved by being pushed by the spheres. Groups worked well together and each team member had their own jobs to ensure they were successful.
