From little acorns, mighty oaks grow
Electrifying new start to 2019/20!
A new school year begins and our unit is Physics with a 'current' focus on electricity. We have a lot of bright sparks in Year 5 this should be a doddle!
What did Benjamin Franklin feel like after he discovered electricity? Yep you guessed it ...... SHOCKED :)))))
The last two weeks have been spent introducing the children to electricity- not literally. They have built circuits as an introduction with some interesting results that they will be investigating further next week. This week they were having great fun exploring static electricity!!
I mean it's only moving a little but you get the idea. We discussed the limited results we had and we were able to conclude that it was the water vapour in the atmosphere (I am sticking to that story). It was getting ready to rain. Did you all know that water droplets could affect static electricity?
