We have had a great STEM week in Year 5 learning about different forces and how they act. We have carried out quite a few experiments during the week. We have made spinners and tested how they reacted to the weight of paper clips. Some of us made boats out of tin foil and filled them with pennies to test their buoyancy. Air resistance was tested with different materials and we then built parachutes to drop out of windows with an egg in then to test which parachute had the best air resistance. We also had a go at making balloon rockets. Here are a few photos of our week.


Covid-19 & School

Welcome to the new normal! In these strange new times school has changed a bit and there’s new ways of doing some things. We’ve put together a resource page of information and guidance about what it means for HPS.
