Derwentwater- Science - Gravity

Class: Mr Carruthers - Derwentwater Year: 2022 - 2023

We learned a lot about Sir Isaac Newton today (what a Legend!).  We studied his life and his work with forces, including gravity.

We did a science experiement where we had to make a hypothesis about whether a ball with more mass would fall faster to the Earth.

The results were unexpected, but lead to more scientific questions - which all good experiments always should!
