This week Year 4 have been extremely busy working on a project. The children have learnt all about electricity during their science lessons and have put this to good use this week when being faced with a scenario.
The scenario was that – Elena is fed up with her baby brother coming into her bedroom and messing it all up, she wants to put an alarm on the door so she knows when he tries to go in. Can you design a battery-powered circuit for Elena to help her solve the problem?
The children worked hard to research how they could do this, spent time planning how they were going to do their design and finally made their alarm systems. Every group managed to make an alarm that sounded when a door was opened.
The children evaluated their designs and said what was good about them and how they could improve them next time, well done Class 4.
