Fun in Science 

In Science, the children have been learning about electricity and circuits.  The children have learned about the symbols used when drawing electrical circuits and drew their own circuit diagrams. They have thought which items in our homes use mains electricity and which use batteries.  They have also made circuits using wires, batteries and bulbs and buzzers.  The children also in one lesson saw how batteries can be replaced with lemons to make a buzzer buzz and a LED light glow.
