Year 5


During Science week, Clapgate got to do lots of exciting experiments every afternoon. Then on the fourth day of science week we got to go to different year groups around school and investigate different experiments. We made square bubbles, slime, lava lamps and looked at dissolving. We had lots of fun and made sure that we understood the different scientific reasoning behind each experiment. Our focus in class all week was forces. We learnt about gravity, air resistance and water resistance. We tested these forces using balloons, bin bags and different plasticine shapes.
