One of the groups had a role play activity to demonstrate how electricity moves through a circuit. Students lined up in a square and collected "power" from a "battery". Students then walked around the circuit and gave their "power" to the light globe.
This afternoon we had a visit from Mr Kyte, a parent who runs his own public speaking training business. He came to talk to students about how to structure a speech. We brainstormed ideas for convincing Mr Coote to allow a McDonalds to be built in the playground. We had some robust discussions about this topic, including some strong dissent!
