Electrical Circuits

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?

Clean Up Australia Day

Today the whole school participated in Clean Up Australia Day activities.

We were able to help by weeding and picking up rubbish from the yard.

It would be fantastic if there was no rubbish in the yard at all.

What suggestions to you have to help us reduce the amount of rubbish at Werribee Primary School?
