Science in Year 5

Can you feel the force?

Our first topic this year was Forces, we investigated a range of different forces: gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction.


Through these investigations, the children developed an understanding of balanced and unbalanced forces and their effects.


We ended our unit by investigating how mechanisms, like levers, pulleys and gears, help us to use smaller forces.

Would we survive in the Moon?

During this unit all about space, the children have researched some fascinating facts about the Sun, Moon and Earth.


This has allowed them to develop an understanding of day and night, the four seasons and the Moon’s phases.


We have learnt about the Sun and the planets making up our Solar System, along with the other stars in their constellation.
