Ex-static Wolves class!

This week it was the turn of static electricity to take centre stage!

Our 'Bright Sparks' topic on electricity continues to go from strength to strength. Our very own 'Bright Sparks' explored static electricity by creating an electrical charge by rubbing a balloon against their jumpers, hair and anything else they could get their hands on. From paper shavings, to their own bodies, to the wall and computers, the pairs searched the classroom for objects to stick their balloon to.

This practical experience gave our superstars the perfect foundation from which to explore how thunderstorms work today. What super fun! What super learning! (Take a look at all of our pictures here)

Smiles all round as static electricity came to life!
