Good morning Year 6!
Well, who watched the premiership football last night? There were some excited people in my house I can tell you (but not me). What about that goal-line technology! There has still been no rain here but according to the weather forecast, it's arriving in bucket fulls today! So, let's see what you fabulous children will be learning while the rain is pouring outside...

L.O Understand the symbols used in a circuit diagram and how the brightness of a bulb is related to the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit.
Today your work is on Education City and is revision of the Electricity topic that we did in the Autumn Term. YOU WILL NEED TO DO THEM ON A LAPTOP, AS THEY ARE NOT ALL TABLET FRIENDLY. Once you have done the Education City activities there are some experiments you can try.
It isn’t safe to play with circuits and electricity at home, but you can safely do experiments using a special type of electricity called STATIC ELECTRICITY.
Watch the YOUTUBE video. Even if you can’t do them at home, they are fun to watch.
Static electricity is the build-up of an electrical charge on the surface of an object. The smallest particle of a material which an object is made from is called an atom. Atoms contain an equal amount of positive and negative charges. Atoms with the same type of charge repel one another, while those with the opposite type of charge attract one another.
