Today we had a special visitor in school. David is a physics teacher and came to work with the children using balloons.

Through this lesson, the children were able to interact with the balloons and discovered a variety of new, fun things which can be done using them. They used Japanese paper balloons, these inflated through being hit, instead of blowing air into them. The pupils investigated static charge and saw the effect this had on their hair, small pieces of paper and on salt and pepper! They also raced balloon rockets across some string!
