Electricity Topic launch 01.11.2016

What's in a Wire?

The Year 4 children were really excited to learn that they will be investigating electricity for their new learning challenge, aiming to answer the question, 'What's in a wire?' Children worked in teams to play with the electrical equipment and see what they were able to make the resources do. They played with bulbs, managing to make the bulbs light up. The children have generated a bank of questions to try and answer over the course of the half term including 'What is an insulator?' and 'Does electricity always work properly?' We are excited to see the children develop their understanding as the topic continues.
