Yesterday, Y6 investigated the forces in action on a paper spinner.
First, the children used question stem cards to think of their own questions about spinners and then they sorted their questions into the types of enquiry that would be needed to find the answer.
After this, we all agreed to investigate if the length of the wings affected the time taken for the spinner to hit the floor. It did! We found out that by reducing the length of the wings we had reduced the amount of surface area and so there was less air resistance.
