In Year 3, we have had a day looking at circuits. We started the day by creating a simple circuit which we then had to write instructions for. We let our partner check the instructions to see if they would work.
We then looked at investigating how adding more bulbs or batteries would affect the brightness of the light. The children came up with some great prediction and reflected on these before they made their next prediction.
Finally, we look at what is a insulator and what is a conductor. The children tested different object from around the classroom to see what they were. Again, we have had some great conclusion about why some materials conduct electricity and what those materials are.
We have put some of our work on display in Y3HM and Y3JD for you to see what we have been learning.
