Year 5 predicted that the more lamps we added to our electrical circuit, the dimmer the bulbs would be. To prove this scientifically we worked in groups to use a data logger to measure the brightness of the bulb when there was 1, 2 or 3 lamps in our circuits. We had to ensure that we kept our test fair and we also repeated our results to ensure they were accurate.
Year 5 have been carrying out fair tests to investigate what happens when we change a variable on a paper spinner and to help us understand air resistance as a force. Some groups decided to change the length of wings, some changed the shape of the wings whilst others explored the difference when dropping from different heights. Our results are going to support us in coming up with a conclusion for our investigation.
Interpreting our results
Year 5 carried out comparative tests to explore how light travels and how shadows are formed. They carried out a fair test to investigate what happens to the size of shadows when you change different variables.
