In the Spring term, the Year 4's looked at the Electricity topic in Science. Firstly, the children learned about the different types of current (AC and DC) and appliances that require electricity to work. The children also learned about renewable and non-renewable energy and the impact these have on our ever-changing world.
After this, they created electrical circuits, including a bulb and buzzer, and were able to identify materials that were conductors and insulators. The children noticed what happened to the circuit when a switch was introduced and how to create an open and closed circuit.
Learning about electrical safety, the children know the dangers of electricity and how to stay safe when conducting investigations and when using electrical appliances at home.
