Static Electricity!

This afternoon, we explored static electricity.

Some children rubbed the balloons on their heads and made their hair stand on end! The hairs were repelling each other because they had become positively charged. The negative charge had gone into the balloon.

Once the balloons were negatively charged, we managed to get them to stick to the wall.

Ask the children how we did it.

South Yorkshire School Games Week

We really enjoyed having a go at the School Games challenges in the sunshine this afternoon. We completed the ping pong and frisbee challenges outside, and the boxing and dance indoors. For all of the challenges, we watched a short tutorial which explained what we needed to do to achieve bronze, silver and gold awards. The focus of the week is reconnecting with friends and having fun doing some exercise.
