Topic:

FALLING DOWN

What happens when you drop a ball?

What will happen?

Can you describe this process using a gravity explanation?

You have a go and see what happens!

There is no air resistance acting on the ball, so it can go straight down.

The ball falls downwards because gravity is pulling it down.

The bouncy ball falls downwards because it is heavy. If it were lighter, it would float away.

Which statement do you agree with and why? Explain fully using the scientific terms you have researched.

Maths:

Indoor Maths-

Scaling

Using the internet can you find two famous landmarks from anywhere in the world.

Find the height of the buildings and write that down.

You will now make a create a scaled drawing of both landmarks

For example if you have chosen the Eiffel Tower it is 324m tall. You could say 1cm=10m and therefore once drawn to scale your scaled drawing would be 32.4cm in height.

Weight is a measure of the strength of gravity acting on an object. It is measured in newtons (N).
