This week, we have loved finishing our forces topic before delving into our new topic of life cycles.
First, we looked at water resistance and the effect it has on objects moving through water – we noticed that the more streamlined an object, the less water resistance. Therefore it is able to move quickly through the water. We then completed an investigation, looking at different shapes of a boat and made predictions about which boat would be able to glide through the water the quickest. The children then had a go at making their own boat! Such fun!
After that, we begun our new science topic – life cycles! We dissected a plant and looked at its features, making a note of the male and female parts that allow a plant to reproduce and so continue its life cycle. Take a look!
