In Science this half term, the children in Year 4 have been learning about Electricity. We decided to get creative and link this to our DT topic.
The children were asked to design Santa’s sleigh that they could make and light up by building a complete circuit which they could control with a switch that they had to make to turn the light on and off.
The children first designed their sleighs and listed all the equipment they would need.
The children brought in their boxes and they began to assemble and decorate their sleighs.
They finally had to add their circuits and light up Santa’s sleigh.
They then evaluated their sleighs and discussed what they would do differently next time to improve their sleighs.
The children thoroughly enjoyed making these and as you can see, they did an amazing job.
