Electrical circuits

Year six have been learning about electrical circuits during science lessons this half term. We started by learning the different symbols that are used to represent various items such as a bulb, cell or switch.

The children were then tasked with making a variety of circuits to see how they worked. The main experiment was to try and understand which materials from the classroom were good conductors and which were insulators.

There was a huge variety of materials tested such as pencils, scissors, pens and even someone’s glasses!
