Pitch Perfect- Electricity and Sound -Spring 1

This half term we will be learning all about electricity and sound. We will be doing lots of science investigations and learning how to carry out a fair test and write up an investigation correctly. We will take part in a science workshop where we will create working circuits and look at the dangers of electricity. Follow this link to find out more information about electricity and sound.

    There are more than one type of energy. These are some egsamples heat movement sound and light

    Electricity is dangerous did you know you can see electricity in the dark

    HOW IS ELECTRICITY IS MADE?

    Electricity for our homes is made from power stations.
    Power stations contains large machines called turbines wich are turned very very quickly.
    Power staitions need large amounts of energy to turn the turbines.

    Batteries and main electricity are dangerous because you can die and you can get a shock.

    You would think most big batteries have more volts but actually most small batteries have more volts. I would of thought I wouldn’t like electric and batteries but I actually like it.

  • Cameron says:

    Electricity in our homes comes from a power plant.

  • Evie says:

    The types of energy is light,sound,heat and movement. I liked the work shop because I learnet about new things and I’m really exited about this project. Thomas Edeson invented the light blob

  • Dante says:

    I really enjoyed the electricity workshop it was very fun and I learnt a lot too.My favourite part was probably doing the electricity stuff like the motors buzzers and light bulbs!I wish we could do it again sadly we can’t though because you only do each trip or workshop in one class so we won’t be doing it again.Some people might have got bored though listening to the excact same information which I would have got bored of.Here are some questions to answer about electricity.

    Who made the lightbulb?

    How was electricity made?

    Will water ever run out?

  • Isabel says:

    These are the electric thing I have in my house phone,light bulb,microwave,hair dryer,TV,iPad,washing machine,toaster.

  • Harry WR says:

    Electricity is caused by electrons, the tiny particles that “orbit” around the edges of atoms, from which everything is made. … An atom normally has an equal number of electrons and protons(positively charged particles in its nucleus or center), so atoms have no overall electrical charge.

  • Amelia says:

    Thomas Edison created the light bulb.He was born on the 7th February 1847 and died 1931.He invented 15 things.He was 84 when he died.The 15 things were phonograph,kinetoscope,vitascope,movie camera,mimeograph,tasimeter,kinetgraph,phonograph cylinder,electric power distribution,carbon microphone,quadruplex telegraph,kinetophone.

  • Amelia says:

    I use my I pad, oven, washing machine, TV, dryer, light bulb, and phone the most.

  • Amelia says:

    This is how you make electricity

    Starting in the centre of the wire you wrap the wire around the marker 30 times and make it tight and neat and slide the coil you made of the marker, wrap each loose end of the wire around the coil a few time to hold it together. Then point the wires away from the loop as shown.

    Oops I spelt electric wrong!
