Year 5 Science – Friction!

Jan 19, 2023Science

Year 5 have been true scientists this afternoon! We explored the contact force ‘friction’ and how it acts upon objects. Rubbing our hands together to create heat was a brilliant example of friction in action. After planning an experiment together, we made some predictions about which surfaces would create the most friction and then put our theory to the test. Our results took some of us by surprise! Using tables and graphs, we represented our findings and drew our own independent conclusions. A super – scientific afternoon
