Cracking Ideas

Our new topic is called  ‘Cracking Ideas’ where we plan to become inventors as we come up with our own ‘Cracking Ideas’! We’ll find out about some famous inventors and look into how some everyday machines work. As we investigate how electrical circuits and simple machines function, we’ll be growing in knowledge which we hope will help us to build our own ‘cracking’ inventions! In science, we’ll be investigating parallel circuits and circuits in series and we’ll be using our knowledge to solve problems in circuits. We’ll also be learning to draw complex circuits using the correct symbols. Simple machines are all around us and we use them daily so we’ll be finding out more about these too. In DT, we’ll be working on designing a product and then using our new knowledge to improve and refine it before constructing it as accurately as possible.
