This week in 5TH we have focussed on presenting a balanced discussion during our English work. We were exploring who were the stronger (and better all-round) civilisation, the Anglo-Saxons or the Vikings. Most of us decided that the Vikings took the crown due to their aggression in battle and their more interesting gods and mythology.
In science, we investigated water resistance, and how this form of friction can be useful. We discovered that surface area has an enormous impact on the resistance offered by water, and that streamlined shapes can cut through water with more ease, therefore making them sink faster. Here an example of the boat we designed this week.
