Science

Following on from our learning surrounding switches, we applied our knowledge to make pressure pads; using tin foil, cardboard and foam. Once we had explored these materials and discovered how to make the pressure pad, we used these as quiz show 'buzzers' - we wrote our own questions based on our learning from the term and tested each other's knowledge!

We made our own switches in Science! We were given paper clips, brass fasteners and cardboard, and tried lots of different experiments to create the perfect switch. Eventually, we realised that creating something where the paperclip could move between the 2 brass fasteners did the job of a switch in a circuit.

In term 1 our topic in science is electricity. We began by learning what electricty actually is: a flow of particles, called electrons, that when given energy, move and make things happen! To demonstrate this, we went into the hall and created a human circuit! We were each an electron, stood in a circle. Mrs. Taylor - Hicks was the power source (a battery) that gave us energy (grapes) When we got a grape, we moved to create a flow of electricity. Then, we added a bulb - we gave him some of our energy as we passed to make him light up!

 

Afterwards, we went and learnt the symbols for different electrical components, and made some circuits that we then drew in our books.
