Making Switches

Year 4 have been learning about electrical circuits and how they work. Last week Dolphins explored different items which require an electrical circuit to work and can be controlled using a switch. The class were fantastic at using scientific vocabulary to explain what was happening when the switch was turned on and off.

This week the class made their own switch using card, paper clips and split pins, and checked that their switch worked by making an electrical circuit.

We’re looking forward to next week when the children design their own experiment to find out about electrical insulators and conductors.
