Electrostatic Science

Last term we had lots of great News Reporter show and tell sessions. One of the presentations that got the students talking involved a balloon and static electricity. Everyone loved it so much they wanted links to more resources so here they are.

Happy holidays everyone!

Goth Girl By Chris Riddell

Tired of all those books about a fairy princess saved by some handsome prince or those books with all those bright colours that are supposed to be aimed at a certain gender? You know the ones…well so are we so it’s great to introduce Goth Girl by Chris Riddell. A book series for all types of readers who just love good and exciting books with a strong lead character that isn’t just into fairies, looking pretty and bright colours.
