The children in Year 1 stepped up to the challenge of trying to make a bulb light up.    They needed to create a light source to help Alan the Alien send a  message home.  The children worked in groups to make an electrical circuit.  Each group tried a number of times but they persevered and all were successful in the end.  During our next science session we are going to add a switch so that we can turn the light off and on.  We will then send a coded message to help Alan the Alien get home.
