Working with Year 6
One afternoon just before the end of term we went into the Y6 classroom and planned a burglar alarm. We drew a picture of what we were going to make. We could choose between making one that goes off if you opened a window or one that goes off if you stood on a pressure plate. We needed to make a list of all the things we needed to make a complete circuit. It was fun making our circuits with the year sixes.
The next day we made our circuits. Some turned out really well and some didn’t. It took about two and a half hours to finish our circuits. Our materials were sponge, tinfoil, card, string, sticky tape and wood.
