Key Stage 2 Forces Science Year 5

This Forces in Action Year 5 Science scheme of work teaches your children how forces affect everything around us. They will learn about the effects of gravity, friction, air and water resistance as well as build models to explore the ways in which pulleys, levers and gears work!

 
#TheCompleteSeries6lessons

Completely ready-to-teach, this forces Year 5 planning pack contains lesson plans, slides, differentiated worksheets and a whole range of other resources you need to deliver the forces KS2 objectives for Year 5. Making it easy for you and good fun for the children too!

#Lesson1Gravity

In this Year 5 Gravity lesson children will learn about the effects of gravity and, in particular, the ways in which falling objects of different sizes are affected by the force of gravity.

They may then either conduct a gravity experiement, or study a range of sources to find out more about the lives and work of some important scientists.

This downloadable lesson contains a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and teaching resources.

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Challenge cards
#Lesson2Friction

This Year 5 friction investigation for KS2 explains what friction is and gets children thinking about instances of high and low friction. It includes a choice of two exciting, practical activities which enable your class to explore the effect of friction acting between two surfaces.

This ready-to-teach downloadable science lesson contains a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
#Lesson3AirResistance

What is air resistance? How can we observe its effects?

This Year 5 Air Resistance Experiment lesson clearly explains how this force affects moving objects and includes a choice of two practical activities that will get your class working scientifically to explore the effects of air resistance on falling objects.

Containing a detailed plan, engaging slides and printable teaching resources this lesson really is ready-to-teach.

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Plastic bag parachute sheet
  • Spinner template
#Lesson4WaterResistance

In this Water Resistance KS2 Year 5 Forces lesson, your children will consider the differences between moving on land and in water. They will discus their predictions of the speed at which different objects will fall through water before exploring their ideas in an exciting practical activity.

This downloadable lesson contains a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Results sheet
#Lesson5LeversandPulleys

This Levers and Pulleys Year 5 lesson explains how these mechanisms work. It will get your children thinking about ways in which we use 'simple machines' and why they are so useful.

With a choice of two practical activities, your children will love making models to explore how these ancient devices make lifting and moving easier.

This ready-to-teach downloadable lesson contains a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Lolly stick catapult sheet
#Lesson6Gears

This Year 5 Gears lesson describes how gears work together in a variety of different transmissions. It will challenge your children to consider how speed, direction and torque change in different transmissions before making and testing their own gearboxes and transmissions.

This ready-to-teach downloadable lesson contains a lesson plan, slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Cut-out gears sheet
  • Types of transmission sheet
  • End of Unit Quiz

Curriculum Objectives covered
  • Year 5 - planning different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary
  • Year 5 - taking measurements, using a range of scientific equipment, with increasing accuracy and precision, taking repeat readings when appropriate
  • Year 5 - recording data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classification keys, tables, scatter graphs, bar and line graphs
  • Year 5 - reporting and presenting findings from enquiries, including conclusions, causal relationships and explanations of and degree of trust in results, in oral and written forms such as displays and other presentations
  • Year 5 - explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object
  • Year 5 - identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces
  • Year 5 - recognise that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect
