                                           Autumn Term 


The Autumn term was very busy this year. We had lots going on in school, including lots of work involving electrical circuits in KS2. Y3/4 designed their own Christmas tree which used an electrical circuit and light bulbs to light up the star. Y4/5 used their coastal themed work to inspire them as they designed lighthouses. They used their teamwork skills to design and evaluate them. Their electrical circuits used switches and they even found places to hide the wires.
