Our topic will begin with an Electricity workshop, where will be hands on making circuits, learning and understanding symbols and making sure we are always safe with electricity.

We will cover the following objectives:

Compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches

Use recognized symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram

 

As scientists we will:

Know the symbols for cell, battery, switch, motor and buzzer

Construct simple circuits

Recognise and explain what is needed for a circuit to work

Find and present conclusions
