Year 4 have been learning all about electricity and have had the chance to conduct several science investigations.
Nearly all the electricity we use is artificially produced by generators and batteries; yet electricity is one of the basic natural forces of the universe, and it’s around us all the time.
Did you know that a balloon charged with static electricity can stick to a wall?
Static electricity can even bend water!
We not only put those two theories to the test but also succeeded in creating our own complete circuits to light up bulbs and turn on motors.
It has been such a pleasure to see the children working and learning together and specially seeing their faces light up in awe at the results of their investigations.
