Year 6 know what's Watt

Having recalled how to connect a basic circuit, the Year 6 pupils spent lessons observing the behaviour of components when varying voltage, and drawing circuit diagrams. The children were then introduced to parallel circuits and are using this knowledge to design an invention that uses this circuit configuration.

Olivia and Luke (pictured) are designing a blender that uses a complex parallel circuit where the branches spin the motor at different speeds by connections to the battery pack at different voltages.

When completed, we will share some photos and videos of the inventions in action!
