Wk ending 20.10.17

Switched on learning in Year 4
Porthpean class was awash with 'light-bulb' moments today while investigating electrical circuits during science. The children shared their knowledge of electricity, in their first lesson on this topic, then got to independently investigate how to make a circuit work. Although a daunting task at first, the children soon got to grips with their collection of wires, batteries, motors, bulbs and buzzers they were presented with. After a lot of trial and improvement, and some great team work, it wasn't long until some cheers of achievement could be heard! Well done to all!
 
The class were very pleased to know that Electricity and Circuits lessons will be continued after half term.
Parents - be prepared to answer some electricity questions, the children thought of lots of things they want to know.
