The Year 2 students have been investigating ‘push’ and ‘pull’ and the concept of gravity as part of their Science unit this term. This week, the students were given the task of designing their own toy parachute using their knowledge of forces acquired during class throughout the term. It was encouraging to see the variety of designs as the students thought carefully about what materials they will use, and how they will construct their parachute. We are looking forward to seeing the parachute designs come to life and put them to the test once they are complete.
