Pupils look at a number of circuit diagrams and predict which ones will work and illuminate a bulb. Pupils then make each circuit to investigate their predictions.
Learning Objectives:
PoS - use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram
NaG -building on their work in year 4, pupils should construct simple series circuits, to help them to answer questions about what happens when they try different components
WS - systematically identifying the effect of changing one component at a time in a circuit
