### Round and Round We Go

This term's theme is Round and Round We Go where we will be learning about circles, circuits and cycles.

Our key questions which we will be focusing on this term are:

• How do circles make things work?
• How have people used circles to make a difference to the world?
• How do circles help us to understand life and living things?

We have started off the theme investigating electricity. We have had great fun trying to make circuits.

We had to think which electrical components we would need. We found out that to make a simple circuit with one lightbulb we would need:

• a battery
• a battery holder
• a lightbulb
• a lightbulb holder
• two wires with crocodile clips.

Miss Kay set us some challenges:
• How can we make the lightbulb shine brighter?
• How can we light up two lightbulbs in the same circuit?

We investigated and discovered how:

CIRCUITS WERE VERY INTERESTING.
