Parachute testing

The girls in 4th class this week were learning about forces and gravity in science. To see how gravity can be slowed down the girls went designing and making parachutes. They used a range of materials including old clothes, plastic bags and newspaper. They then chose a toy to be their test pilot before heading out to the yard to test their designs. There was some very successful flights which lowered the pilot gently to the ground.
