Year 6 investigation of electrical circuits

img_5843img_5845

Year 6 have been LOVING learning about electricity and building circuits. In the first week we learnt the electrical symbols so that we were able to draw any of the circuits we constructed.

The we created a simple circuit using a cell, a light bulb and tinfoil. The children were amazed when they were able to get the bulb to light.

This week we investigated what happened when you added more components to your electrical circuit. The children created a simple circuit and then watched the effect on the light bulb when they added a propeller.

George has been amazing when created circuits and even brought one in he created at home with his dad! This is on display in the year 6 classroom for anyone who would like to see it.
