We are Electricians!

This is Year 6 reporting from St Cuthberts powerplant. We have been busy using our wires and batteries to generate power for the school! And boy, have we been cooking up some electricity! We have been showing off to the teachers how much we can remember from our Year 3 Science lessons, and we think they are quite impressed! Who knew that a bunch of 10 year-olds could be so excited by a little bit of metal and lithium? For those of you who don’t know, metal is a conductor – FYI. We have been showing what a complete electrical circuit looks like through using light blubs and motors. Our imaginations have been running wild as we have been thinking of different objects we can use to show the speed of our motors and to make this more entertaining! Our poor rubbers have been subjected to an hour of torture whilst being impaled by a sharp object, aka our motors. The classroom was full of flying rubbers, along with shrieks of laughter. Next time, circuit diagrams and symbols. Stay tuned. #sciencegeek #lettherebelight #leadersoflearning.
