Year 4 Bright Sparks!
Year 4 are fully charged and in full flow of our electricity learning in Science this half-term.
True to our school motto, we began our unit by considering how we can 'be safe' with electricity. We inquisitively worked our way through our virtual house, identifying electrical hazards and creating and sharing our top tips on how we can make ourselves and our environments electrically safe.
It was then our opportunity to put our knowledge of circuit components and simple series circuits to the test: could we make our bulbs, buzzers and motor driven propellers burst into life? We got ourselves ready to work scientifically, and in our groups, we experimented with different ways of connecting our circuit components until we had success!
For an afternoon, our classroom was full of buzzing, flashing and whirring, and we were very proud scientists enjoying our achievements!
