Chessington World Of Adventures
Year 5’s topic this term is Scream Machine. As part of their engage learning, the children went on a trip to Chessington World of Adventures. They took part in a workshop where they learnt about forces and investigated them through a range of experiments. They worked in groups to discuss and show centrifugal force in action by making their own mini rollercoasters. They also investigated which materials cause the most friction, by using a toy car and different materials as a surface to see which slowed it down most. Year 5 also had the opportunity to experience some of these forces by going on some of the rides.
