How does… Smart Phone Touch screens work?

Definitions of word at the bottom of the post. Look for words hi-lighted in red.
‘Unlike resistive touch screens, capacitive screens do not use the pressure of your finger to create a charge in the flow of electricity. Instead the work with any thing that holds an electrical charge – including human skin.’
Basically, your phone will need your skin to complete the electrical circuit, using your skin will help the phone find where you have touched.

Here are some websites that I have used and will give you extra infomation..

Pancake Day!

Today years 5 and 6 were lucky enough to be able to make Pancakes…

Pancake day marks the start of Lent.

On Pancake day Christians give up some sort of luxurious food. (Chocolate, Sweets, Cake) They do this to memorise Jesus going out into the desert and fast’s for 40 days and 40 nights. As we are not quite prepared to fast for 40 days we give up some luxurious food (Listed above) instead.
