Parachute drop!

This term our Science topic is ‘Forces’. We have been looking at the effects of gravity, upthrust and air resistance.

In their groups, our year 5 scientists planned an investigation to answer the question ‘What affects how well a parachute falls?’.


Some groups decided to test the impact of varying string lengths, weight of the object and size of the parachute.


The children had be quick on the button in order to time how quickly their parachutes fell.
