Electricity

admin on: Year 5 2019/20

This half-term, Year 4 have started learning all about electricity. After going on a learning walk around the school, we realised just how much electricity impacts on all our daily lives. We listed all the appliances that we could find and then categorised them into groups, depending on whether they provided us with sound, comfort, entertainment etc.
The children felt that it was very important to highlight the safety aspects of electricity, and so designed posters to illustrate the dangers. Oscar did such a good job that his landed him in Celebration assembly!
We loved figuring out circuits and how to light our bulbs, working really sensibly and collaboratively with our partners. The lightbulbs in our heads have really switched on!


This year the children in year 4 are taking part in 'The children of the Eucharist' programme.
