Our Work

Wellingtonia Class have been experimenting with various electricity circuits in their Science lessons. Seven groups of children conducted different experiments using different components.


These included: bulbs, motors and buzzer investigations.


Some of the investigations were:


  • What happens to the brightness of a bulb if I increase/decrease the number of bulbs in the circuit?
  • What happens to the volume of a buzzer if I increase/decrease the number of batteries/cells in a circuit?
  • What happens to the speed of a motor if I increase/decrease the voltage of the cells/batteries in the circuit?


Here is a video showing the outcome of one of those experiments.
