The topic for the Spring term is ‘Batteries not included’! During the first two weeks the children were introduced to electricity as a mini-topic. They learnt some interesting facts about electricity and how to keep safe when around electricity or using electrical equipment. They especially enjoyed the hands on experience of making circuits work. The children got to experience connecting light bulbs, buzzers and motors to their circuits and what they needed to do to make them work!  A great experience!

The class then moved on to learning about Space. They loved this mini-topic and were keen to learn about the planets and what they looked like and what could be found on them. The highlight was when they sent their rockets soaring off into ‘space’. Lots of excitement as the rockets zoomed into the air, fuelled by bicarb and vinegar!

Children were delighted to bring toys in from home, a battery operated toy and one that did not require batteries, to show and share in class. This activity allowed them to make comparisons about the different toys and to understand why some toys require batteries and others do not. Kimmie brought in an amazing globe which she was really proud of and wanted to show the other children how it worked. With the use of a ‘pen’ which you placed on different parts of the world it would tell interesting facts about that place. What an amazing toy!
