Thank you for logging on to our blog and welcome back to all the new members of 5th class. We have a busy year ahead so please check in every few weeks to see what we are getting up to during the year!
Friction is a Force!
We have been investigating the force of friction and we have learned that the more friction that there is between an object and a surface ( two materials) the harder it is to move the object across that surface. We also learned that the force of friction generates heat, why don't you try rubbing your hands together if you are feeling the cold on these cold mornings!
Take a look at some of our investigations below. We investigated the use of oil to act as a lubricant. We also investigated the distance a toy car would travel coming down a ramp and travelling across a dry floor, a wet floor, a floor with sand and lastly a floor with oil! Ask the boys and girls in 5th class to find out the results!!
We have been learning all about WWI, how it all began, the countries involved and how the lives of people were impacted during this terrible time in our recent history. In particular we have been reading about life in the trenches and we have seen some incredible photographs taken of soldiers in and around their trenches. Each member of 5th class has created their own WWI Trench Diorama. Have a look at the wonderful creations in the below gallery.
