The Force Is Strong In You Year 5. I think Yoda agrees!


Hello everyone, I hope you enjoyed your parachute or helicopter investigations last week. From the photos and work I have seen, it looked fun!

This week in Science we will be continuing our learning about forces. In this lesson, we will be discussing upthrust (or buoyancy) in more detail. We will discuss what density is and how it affects floating. Finally, we will make some predictions which we will test.


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.
