The Force Continues To Be Strong In You Year 5!

What are non-contact forces?

This week in Science we will learn about non-contact forces. We will investigate gravity and learn about Galileo by completing an investigation. Finally, we will learn about magnetic force, including some uses for magnets.

Look at your work from the last three weeks to remind yourself of what we have learned so far about Forces.


Remember to pause the video below when asked, or when there is a question, and to use your exercise book to write down your answers.
