Bright Sparks

Our second project this half term is called Bright Sparks


The big idea

Electricity is a type of energy. We use electricity in our lighting and heating, TVs and computers, cars and trains, toys and games – even clocks and watches use electricity. In today’s world, most people use electricity every single day. We would find it difficult to live without electricity. But how does electricity really work?


So far we have been exploring electical circuits and have created a series and a parallel circuit.  We have also carried out an investigation into which materials conduct electricity and which are insulators. 


We will also be looking at different sources of electricity around the world.
