Year 5 & 6 – Science

5th February 2024

Today, the children spent time learning about the difference between weight and mass and how to measure these. They enjoyed their time using the Newton metres to understand the link between weight and mass and successfully drew the conclusion that for every 100g (mass) of an object, there is a gravitational pull of 1Newton (weight). The children then used their maths skills to explain that mass the mass of an object is 100 times greater than its weight.
