Our main topic this term is The Earth in Space. We had a very exciting and hands-on trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester in October. The children viewed two planetarium shows and were able to explore the amazing exhibits on offer.
This half-term we will be turning our attention in science to gravity and the effects of air and water resistance as well as performing experiments about friction.
Nearer Christmas, we will investigate levers, pulleys and gears in mechanisms, which allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.
