Last half term in science, we were looking at electricity and focusing on circuits, insulators and conductors. The children have loved making their own circuits, identifying and naming its different parts as well as trying out different materials to discover which ones are conductors and which ones are insulators.
This science unit ties really well with our objective in DT, which requires children to create a functional and appealing product with an electrical system. So, they designed a torch to their chosen user’s specification. The children were pleased with their outcome.
