Year 5 are Electric!

Year 5 are Electric

Year 5 hit the ground running in Science this term when they went into the lab to learn all about the properties of materials.

They investigated the ‘conductivity’ of items using an electrical circuit.  If the material being tested was a ‘conductor’ the light bulb would light up, if the light remained off then the material was an ‘insulator’ and it wouldn’t conduct electricity.

They tested aluminium, copper, wood, glass and graphite, and created a table to show their results.

Ask them this evening which material they found to be the best conductor.
