  1. This looked really interesting when I walked through the hall! I loved hearing Isaac explain the materials that he chose and then Finlay explained how he made it a fair test.
    What was the best part of the experiment?
    Your scientific knowledge is so impressive! I wonder if some of you will come to Year 6 and show me your Science books?
    Keep it up,

    Step 1 you must plan your parashouts
    Step 2 you must make your parashouts
    Step 3 you must test your parashouts
