We moved this on a stage further this week, and as part of our ‘’Exciting Experiences’’ promise, the whole of Year 4 took to the playground to carry out an investigation into whether the length of the circuit affected the brightness of a bulb. Initially each class created a giant circuit apiece, before the whole year group came together to make a single enormous circuit.
This required excellent teamwork, as we had 100 wires all needing to be joined at the same time in order for the electricity to flow correctly! Eventually we did achieve a positive outcome, as a result of careful interaction between the students, and our scientific knowledge.
The bulb however was quite dimly lit. Can you think of ways in which we could make the bulb shine brighter? Please feel free to email me with your suggestions.
