We have been learning about electrical circuits this week. Mrs Stewart gave us two batteries, a battery holder, wires and a bulb with a bulb holder. We had to see if we could put them all together to make the bulb light up. We learned that a circuit must form a loop with the wires from the power source in order for it to work properly. We managed it, although the wires were a bit fiddly!
We are going to use our electrical circuits to light up our lighthouse models when we make them.
