Our Science topic this term has been electricity.
The Scientists in Avocets have been working hard to catagorise electrical goods into groups depending on whether they use mains or batteries; create circuits that have a bulb or buzzer to show that the electricity is flowing; thinking about the materials that either conduct or insulate electricity and have designed and created their own switches. The last part of our topic will be to look at how to stay safe when using electricity. We will also be linking this learning to our upcoming D+T project.
The scientists have met each challenge with enthusiasm, drawing from their past learning to help make choices about the materials they would need and why they would need them.
As you can see from the photos, the scientists have done well with all their electrical learning.
