This term Year 4 are learning about ‘ELECTRICITY’. We understand electricity is a source of energy used to power products around the home.
The children were exposed to vocabulary such as cell, crocodile clip, buzzer, motor, bulb, bulb holder, battery, wire and so on. They were handed these items and told to build a circuit. The children learned a circuit is a loop around which an electric current flows. When the electrical energy in the current tranfers to a device such as a bulb it lights up.
