Autumn 2 Bright Sparks

Our next project is called ‘Bright Sparks’ and we will be investigating the question: ‘How can science improve our lives?’

During half term, look around your house, garden, street, town, places you visit etc and try to think about how we use science to improve our everyday lives.

We will be deepening our understanding of light and electricity in the classroom and linking our science learning to maths and DT when we make vehicles.
