Years 1 and 2 went to visit the Science Department at Millfield Senior School.

Mr Hudson had prepared a fantastic workshop for them focusing on electricity. They learnt that electrons need a complete circuit in order to move and that electricity can pass through different materials. The children made human circuits to make a small ball light up and saw electricity jump across a gap using a ‘Jacob’s Ladder’. Mr Hudson also talked about the dangers of mains electricity. Finally, the children used static wands to make a piece of foil float in the air. They all had a wonderful time!
