We have now looked at a number of performance poems which use rhythm and rhyme. In many of these raps, the poets are writing about their own families, friends, aspirations and experiences.


It is now time for us to write our own Lockdown raps!  There are some amazing examples of Lockdown Raps, spend some time looking at the following for inspiration.

Today we are continuing to investigate forces. We are going to consider the effects of water resistance!


Water resistance is the friction between water and the surface of a moving object. Before you start your experiment, read the PowerPoint presentation.

The Experiment

We are investigating how the shape of an object effects how quickly it moves through the water.


You will need:

- A container of water

- Blue-tack/play-dough/plasticine or household objects with different shapes.

- Stop watch

- A copy of the Record Sheet 



1) Using your plasticine, make at least five different shapes e.g. cone, cube, tear drop, penny, cylinder

2) Place each shape on the surface of the water and watch how it moves through the water.




1) Complete Section 1 of the Record Sheet.

    Identify what you going to do to make sure your investigation is a fair test.

2) Complete Section 2 of the Record Sheet.

    Identify which shape will move through the water the quickest and which will be the slowest.



3) Complete Section 3 of the Record Sheet.

    Record how long it takes your shape to sink to the bottom of your container.

4) Repeat each shape three times.

5) Calculate the average time for each shape.



6) Complete Section 4 of the Record Sheet.

   Draw a bar chart using average time.

7) Complete Section 5 of the Record Sheet.

   Identify which shape was the quickest and why,



Its Marbles!

Using your understanding of water resistance, create a boat to carry as many marbles as possible! We would love to see photo's of your creations!
