Circuits with Eagle Owls

Eagle Owls began a new Science topic in the autumn half term: circuits.  They were fortunate to have a visit from Mr Canning (an electrician) in one of their lessons.  He explained how electricians work all around the world in many different places; what his job entails; how he keeps safe working with electricity; and how he became an electrician.

In their cross curricular work, the class made light-up Christmas cards, building their own circuits and designing their own cards.  They discovered LED bulbs have positive and negative leads, so need to be connected to the battery correctly.  They also had to think about a card design that incorporated the lit bulb successfully!  Their sketchbook pages show how carefully they thought this through. Well done Eagle Owls!
