Class teacher - Miss Embley
This week in Science, Class 9 have been exploring what they could replace the wires with in a simple circuit. The materials we used were: paper clips, paper towels, tinfoil and plastic straws. We found out that the paper clip and the tin foil worked because they enabled the bulb to light up. We then learnt that these were conductors and the paper towel and the plastic straws are insulators as they didn’t allow the electricity to freely pass through.
In our Topic lessons, we have been exploring the question ‘How do animal charities help animals?’. This week the children have had a very exciting visit from Michael, who works at Animal Care in Lancaster and his rescue dog Buddy. The children learnt a lot about the responsibilities of having a pet, how the charity helps to support neglected animals and how fundraising works to support the charity. Before the end of the workshop, the children had the opportunity to meet and stroke Buddy!
