Faraday Center

Continuing with our week of provocations and tuning in we visited the Faraday Center in Napier. Here we got to experiment with magnets and discovered more about electricity. We gained lots of new knowledge and also had lots of wonderings and questions that we can investigate further.

Unison Visit

Today we had a visit from Unison as part of our inquiry into 'Electricity in the world around us'

Ethan talked us through what Unison does and about some of the safety aspects that we have to be aware of when around power line, power boxes etc.

Bob showed us what his job involves when he is out in the field fixing power cables. In particular how he keeps safe doing his job and what our responsibility is if we discover power lines/cables that are exposed.

Here are some photos:

Exploring electricity in the world around us

This week we have doing lots of tuning in activities around our new inquiry into electricity in the world around us.

We have been doing some provocations based around experiments and the eight smarts. We are recording what we know and questions that we might have as we complete each activity.

Here are some photos of what we've been up to:
