Our Topic this term is entitled 'Bright Sparks / Sound'.
Whether we are driving around in our cars, working, or relaxing at home, we are turning on lights, music, TV, radio, computers and mobile phones. We are plugged in to sound and light 24 hours a day. But what is the science behind sound and light?
Electricity is one of the most important discoveries ever made and we have learned how to use it to power almost every aspect of our lives. Who discovered electricity and how does it work? As Scientists we will investigate insulators and conductors and learn how to conduct a fair test to extend and develop our understanding of electricity.
We started our Learning Lift-Off with a day exploring electrical games, static electricity and electrical components.
We have investigated how electricity is generated and thought about the advantages and disadvantages of renewable and non-renewal energy. We created non-chronological reports about electricity.
