Today we had a launch for our new Science based mini mission about electricity! We watched an episode of Sky Kids as a clue to our mini mission and then spent the afternoon investigating the parts of a torch, taking it a part and looking at the different parts needed to make a circuit. We discussed how they work together and without one of the parts, the torch wouldn’t work.
The children then had chance to explore electric circuits by making bulbs light up, buzzers make a loud noise and motors spin!
Over the next two weeks we will be looking at gadgets, designing our own spy gadgets and then writing persuasive posters! Alongside this we will learning how to make electric circuits, different types of electricity and the different appliances we use daily.
We are looking forward to the next two weeks!
