During OAA week we completed an investigation into paper aeroplanes. We thought about different questions we could investigate relating to paper planes, for example: Do larger planes fly further? Do heavier planes fly shorter distances? How does the size of the wings impact the distance the plane will fly? Each group designed their own investigation thinking carefully about the variables and how they would measure and collect their results.
We have been looking at light as one of our science topics over the last year. In one of our science lessons this term we made periscopes. We investigated how we could use mirrors to change the direction of light beams and to reflect an image you wouldn’t usually be able to see.
