Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Year 5 investigate parachutes, air resistance and gravity.

Year 5 were set a practical science homework task – Design and make a parachute and capsule/container which will transport an ‘egg astronaut’ safely to the ground.

Lab coats were put on and we became scientists!

We  investigated ‘forces in action’ and we all had great fun as the parachutes (all different shapes, sizes, materials and designs) were launched  from the balcony.
