Electricity (17 images)

Last term we had lots of fun learning all about electricity! The children showed a lot of enthusiasm for the topic and the lessons were designed around their interests and curiosities.

The children applied their knowledge and made a range of working alarm systems in design technology thank you for the shoe boxes!!
