Electrical circuits

Year 6 have been busy this week in their science lessons building electrical circuits.  We always enjoy learning collaboratively - this was something we really missed when we were working at home during the lockdown - and we created a range of electrical circuits to investigate the effect of using the same number of batteries for different numbers of bulbs.  We found that the bulbs restrict the flow of electricity through a circuit and the more bulbs we used, the more the flow was restricted and consequently the dimmer each bulb is.  By increasing the number of batteries in the circuit we were also able to make our lights brighter.
