Tuesday 3rd May 2011 – Circuits in the Lower school

Filed under: Science,Year 3-4 @ 12:07 pm

Last week, the lower school started a new topic in Science called ‘Circuits and Conductors’.  The children first of all worked in pairs to experiment with the pieces of equipment they had in front of them which were a bulb, battery and 2 wires.  The children worked as a team to create a successful circuit which lit the bulb up.  They then looked at each piece of equipment in turn to see how it worked within the circuit and what happened when it was removed from the circuit too.  Finally, they brainstormed some ideas of where electricity can be found in the home and the dangers of electricity.

  1. I really enjoyed working with Gingko class on Thursday and helping them learn about circuits. They worked really hard and were all able to get their bulbs to light up. Well done Gingko class!
