Year 5 Investigate

Year 5 had a very busy science lesson with a mission from Super Skydiving to design and test the best parachute.

Before any designing could happen we needed to learn about air resistance and what better way than to run across the playground with huge sheets of paper – so much fun was had by all!

We then went back to the design studio to design and create our parachutes, thinking about the best size, shape and materials for the job.

Finally the moment came to test our new designs and who better to be our passengers than an egg! Many deaths occurred but we celebrated with 3 perfect eggs; meaning we had 3 well designed and constructed parachutes.

The following day in English we wrote a report back to the Super Skydiving company to provide them with our findings and recommendations for the best parachute!
