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.
