In year 4, our science topic this term has been 'Electricity'. The children have been looking at different types of electricity, where it is generated from and also, the dangers. We looked at the ways in which we could build a simple circuit, using a battery and a bulb. This included extending the circuit to include more bulbs. The children worked together to try and create a switch, and tried using various resources to make the switch within their circuit. These included a bulb holder, a paperclip and wire pins.
They used their skills from this topic to design and create a light or torch in DT, with a switch.
