Sparky Electrics

Today the year 4 children had to complete a series of electrical challenges to earn their junior electricians certificate.

This was the conclusion of our science learning about electricity.

The final task involved designing and making a burglar alarm with a activated buzzer. The children showed fantastic creativity and investigation skills. There were two winning designs. One involved a doughnut trap with an electrical circuit hidden in shoe boxes and the other used a switch made from tinfoil and a clothes peg to activate their alarm system.

Well done to the winning teams!
