Sally taught us about electric circuits and set up activities for us.
We had electric wires, batteries and lights. We had 2 batteries in a power source and we had to clip the wires onto the power source’s metal part and clip the other end with the light’s metal part.
Everyone enjoyed the incursion especially the electric shock machine and had lots of fun!
Thanks Sally for making a really fun incursion!
Tuesday 9th Of June
5/6s Have been learning about Earth and the world around us!
We went to Scienceworks to learn about seasons and space, we went to the Planetarium and watched Tilt.
We explored and our minds were inspired by the wacky inventions! (Sport science and House science were the exhibitions).
Unfortunately we did not go to the Lightning room.
