In art this week, Willow finished their pieces of art inspired by Chris Offilli, adding layers of different materials and then paint patterns on laminate overlays. 

In science on Friday we were looking at air resistance. We discussed that it is a type of friction and occurs between the air and a moving object. We used a flat piece of paper and a screwed up piece of paper to illustrate this. Also the class all got to have a go with the running parachute to see (and feel) the affects of air resistance first hand.
