Future Electrical Engineers and Electricians!

Today we began our exploration of how to create electrical circuits. We created circuits using wires, batteries, switches, lights and speakers. 
We discovered what helped make bulbs glow brighter  and what happens if we add more lightbulbs to a circuit.
We used problem solving skills to figure out how to get the lights to glow and speakers to work.  We had lots of great discussion between children about what might help and what may be the issue!
 We found that certain material conduct electricity  and some don't. 
We also learnt about the scientific symbols used for drawing circuits.  
Next week we will have a go at more of the experiments and hopefully learn to create a battery using fruit to power up a light!


  1. These great photos tell it all. Lots of wonderful learning happening. Mrs R.

  2. This looks like so much fun. Deacon has some sets at home learning to do this too!! Great for budding electricians ��
