This term we are going for an exciting and exhilarating ride on the SCREAM MACHINE! We will be exploring theme parks and rollercoasters, and using them to create persuasive leaflets, adverts and stories. We will be looking at forces, properties of materials and mechanisms in science, an array of computing activities and creating working models of rides. We will design our own theme park and work with the mathematics of theme parks. Roll up, roll up, it's going to be a magnificent ride!
We had an exciting time planning and conducting an investigation into the effects of air resistance. After learning about Galileo's theory on falling objects, we agreed on variables, before going on to design and construct a variety of parachutes using different materials.
