This term, Year 4 are exploring electrical circuits and conductors. Today we used our knowledge of circuits and conductors and insulators to discuss the purpose of switches and how they work.
The children were then given a variety of items such as paperclips, card, paper fasteners and safety pins and experimented with making their own switches to turn on and off their circuits. They worked collaboratively to share ideas and find solutions when their initial ideas didn’t work as expected, and thought of how to improve their designs to make them even better. #learningtogether
