Conductors and Insulators

Robins have been working together to test different materials to establish whether they are conductors or insulators.

First they had to collect the required equipment and setup the circuit.

Didn’t they¬† have fun?!


They then had to record their findings.


Extension: Watch the BBC Teach video on Insulators and Conductors

Here We Are Project

Robins have been actively part of the Here We Are whole school project.
The book provides a powerful vehicle for children to reflect on and make sense of the world we are all living in. The words and pictures work together to help children to understand their place in the world and to move forward together in a positive and constructive way.

Exciting Electricity

Recently Robins are having fun learning all about electricity and electrical circuits.

Robins have discussed :-
– how electricity can occur naturally( e.g lightning ) and other sources of electricity (e.g fossil fuels, nuclear, solar and geothermal)
– appliances that run on electricity

Robins showed a lot of curiosity and critical thinking when discussing electrical circuits. Can you remember the names of each piece of equipment?

Robins also worked well together; discovering how to connect a complete circuit to light a light-bulb.
