30/11/2017 - Science Workshop: Electrical circuits


Year 4 Science Workshop: Electricity  


This week, Year 4 took part in an exciting science workshop with Mr. B. The workshop was all about electricity (Year 4’s current science topic) and the children had an electrifying experience!  Mr. B showed Year 4 how static electricity is formed and explained how our bodies are filled with billions of electrons. They also made a human circuit to demonstrate how electrons jump to create a current of electricity. The main activity involved using a special circuit board to create a variety of circuits. The children were able to create a circuit that made a motor turn, a bulb light and a buzzer buzz. Finally, the children used the buzzer to send Morse code messages.


As expected, the children thoroughly enjoyed their experience with Mr. B and cannot wait to learn more about this shockingly good subject!
