Science - This year, we are using the 'explore, engage, extend' approach to elicit our scientific knowledge and understanding. This means that at the start of each topic, the children identify what they already know and what they would like to know. Following on from this, they then work collaboratively to plan how to meet their learning objectives. 


Our topic this term is 'Electricity and Circuits'. The children explored various activities in order to assess what they already know about this topic, and what they would like to know ...


We will therefore be exploring how electricity works, and how circuits function and how can we use them to power lights and buzzers. The pupils have decided that these concepts will be explored through an investigative, hands-on approach, using real-life case scenarios to problem-solve.
