Primary 5/6/7 Space

Primary 5/6/7 have been following the progress of astronaut Tim Peake in the International Space Station. They watched the Cosmic Classroom lesson that he did from The I.S.S. Tim demonstrated how there is no gravity in space by playing ping pong using a globule of water and hydro-repellent bats.

The children decided that they would like to learn more about gravity and conducted their own experiments in class by linking it to a previous lesson on flight which looked at the four forces of flight which are thrust, lift, weight and  drag.
