  • Mardon - Simple Circuits

    Published 15/10/18

    Mardon enjoyed working with their learning partners to make a simple circuit with a buzzer and a switch. This was then used in a quiz all about electricity, they had to buzz in if they knew the answer. They have learnt how to make a simple circuit, how to draw the basic components in a circuit diagram, how to keep safe around electricity and they have tested different materials to see if their predictions were right about them being an insulator or conductor. I'm sure they might even correct you if you ask for a battery...ask your child what a single battery should be referred to scientifically!

    Published 15/10/18

    Years 5 and 6 had their first afternoon of Outdoor Learning for this half term and had a chance to try their hand at orienteering.  Using an aerial map of the school, they had to locate the "stations" in the correct order and record their journey.  They all did a fantastic job, but a special well done to Angel and Pacha, who took the top spot by 2 secs!  Thank you to Mr Partridge for organising it.
