Our science topic this term is: Electricity.


We will be learning to:

  • Associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit
  • Compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches
  • Use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram.

Can you work out which of these circuits would work and which would not?

Extra challenge: Can you explain why?
