Circuits and Electricity

Children in Upper Key Stage 2 have learnt about several ideas relating to electricity this half term. They are able to draw simple circuit diagrams and label them. They are also aware of the history of the discovery of electricity, electric current and voltage.

This week the children conducted an experiment to explore the following question:

What effects do differing voltages have on a electrical component in a circuit?

The children tested how changing the voltage affected motors and bulbs in a complete circuit.

The children made predictions, collected results and formed conclusions.
