Science Learning

Posted on May 8th, 2017 by Kestrel Class

In today’s Science lesson we began to think about electricity. We collected our thoughts on what we already know about electricity and wrote some questions that we would like to find out.

We also looked on some websites about where in our house we can find electricity and the dangers that it can pose.

The children really enjoyed the website so here is the link!
