We have been working with batteries and switches as part of our science work in Class 1G. We wanted the pupils to understand how every electrical circuit requires a power source in order for it to work. We studied circuits without a battery, and then observed the difference when we placed a battery in the correct place in the circuit. This was also a large part of the task – knowing where to place the battery in order to power up a light bulb. This science work will continue each week, as we build in new features for our circuit and start to learn more about electricity and safety.
