Switching on the Science in LKS2

Years 3 & 4 investigated switches in science this week. Using our knowledge of circuits, we discussed what a switch does, how it works and where it can be positioned within a circuit.

We then had a lot of fun experimenting with different switches and even managed to make a switch out of a paper clip and (after a LOT of head-scratching and trial and error) another one out of a clothes peg and some foil!

Excellent investigative skills and resilience were on display all afternoon. Well done, LKS2
