Alder Class in Year 4 have recently been learning about electricity. They were given the equipment to create their own circuits, and through a mixture of scientific exploration and teamwork they managed to work out how to make a bulb light up!
Some of the groups were ingenious enough to create circuits that lit up several bulbs and began to places switches in their circuits. The children commented that the activity helped them understand how we use electrical circuits in everyday life and are looking forward to learning how we will record our finding using diagrams. Well done Alder Class!
