I decided that my blog could do with a change as it has had the same theme (look) for a few years now. I’m not sure though as I really do like the old theme. So now I have decided to create a poll to see what you think. Please tell me if you like the new theme better or prefer the old theme by taking this poll, thank you.

The year 6’s have been learning about electricity and how circuits work.
First they experimented with creating different types of circuits. Then they demonstrated their knowledge through working in cooperative groups to design and create a product that used batteries as it’s power source.
Press play to see what they created and also the fun they had along the way. 🙂
What do you think of their efforts?
