Circuits

Justice Class showed great resilience in their electricity learning with the hardest task ever. With no help, they wrote a multiple choice question from our class reader and wired up the correct answer to light a bulb. Everybody in the class managed to make the circuit. What an amazing success based on our knowledge of insulators and conductors. Well done all!!

Electrical Circuits

As part of our science topic, we have not only drawn and created circuits but we have also researched the history of electricity and put it on a timeline. We used our chronological skills from last term.
