In our DT topic, we designed and made our own torches. We planned our design, thinking about materials we could use, as well as what our light would be used for. In our science topic, Electricity, we had constructed a simple circuit using wires, batteries and bulbs, and had to include a working switch.
The children tried many variations of how a switch could be made, but the majority decided to use foil, a split pin and paper clips.
Here are some photos to show our finished products,
