Term 2

Our Topic this term is entitled 'Bright Sparks / Sound'.

Whether we are driving around in our cars, working, or relaxing at home, we are turning on lights, music, TV, radio, computers and mobile phones. We are plugged in to sound and light 24 hours a day. But what is the science behind sound and light?

Electricity is one of the most important discoveries ever made and we have learned how to use it to power almost every aspect of our lives. Who discovered electricity and how does it work? As Scientists we will investigate insulators and conductors and learn how to conduct a fair test to extend and develop our understanding of electricity.  



Last week, year 4, 5 and 6 were treated to a musical performance by a trombone group called the Old bones. The children listened to different types of music and were asked questions about them after.  

This term , Year 4 have been learning about electricity.  We enjoyed our experiments , especially circuit building and exploring conductors and insulators.
