Electricity. By Cameron and Udeshpal with guest writers

Today in science we have been independent learners and have been looking up about electricity. There were 4 activities. One of the activities was to look on the internet about safety with electricity. Then we had to make notes of the important things about electricity on a piece of paper. But we could decide how to present our work. Some people have chosen to make a poster, powerpoint or a radio show about safety.

The next activity is to look on the internet to research who found electricity and how it has been used since then. They also are going to choose how to share their work.
Some of the children were using something called flowol 3. We were controlling a picture by making it move like making a light houses lights go on and off. Their was different pictures and we also made a sequence with it. First we found it difficult but after we got the hang of it we found it very easy to do even though it was the first time we did it. It was really fun making the sequences and being controllers. (By Bismah)

One of the groups were making the circuits and checking if the circuits worked. There was a sheet that you had to decide if the different circuits would work or not. And you even had to make the circuits to check. After that Miss said we could play and try out circuits of our own that we wanted. We tried out making loads of different circuits to see if they worked. We found out loads like if you add 2 bulbs they get more dim than if there is only 1. Some of the boys made a really massive circuit! (By Max and Josh)

Yesterday we had lots of fun too. Steve the technician helped us with how to light a clowns eyes, nose and how to spin his tie around. There was another activity about a Lego dinosaur and you could control it on the computer. The other activity was with the bee boxes and the cars. You had to make them go around the map rug.

This post will need to be finished after the weekend because we ran out of time! TBC….

      How do we make sure we are safe around electricity? What is around the wire to protect us? Do you know any safety rules for using electrical items?

        Around the wire is a plastic case so you don`t get so you don`t get an eletric shock and I know a saftey tip
        – Don`t put water near the wire
        -never come out of your paddling pool (or something that makes you wet) and touch wire other wise you will get an eletric shock
        -and if you have and adapter that is full be very carefull or take them out becuase you could get and eletric shock
        This we all hurt you.
