Let there be light........................

Light Bulbs, Batteries and Wires

After giving the children, the equipment to build a circuit......and no instructions on how to do it, as I wanted to see what methods they would use, as well as highlighting the importance of perseverance (as we always do!) The children were all fantastic at building the circuits, using the knowledge I had previously taught them....including conducting experiments, choosing variables and most importantly the safety aspects in relation to electricity!!

We were investigating which bulb would be the brightest...using 1, 2 or 3 bulbs, and using tracing paper to test the brightness!!

The children worked brilliantly as part of a team, they all successfully predicted and tested each circuit and had written the results of the experiment, coming to a variety of conclusions. A very successful science lesson.....once again, a very proud teacher!!!!
