LH light up the world!

LH have studied and evaluated different designs of torches and their use.  As a result, the children then designed and planned their own torches.  In addition, they examined different switches using split pins, paper clips and the conventional switch.  After tweaking their designs, LH had an industrious day; firstly making their own circuits before fitting them into the housing made from kitchen rolls.  The children then decorated their torches and evaluated them against their original designs.  Mrs Hall was so proud and impressed by the way that all the children worked together and helped each other when they became stuck.  Fantastic work LH!

The photos show:  LH industriously making their circuits;  3 different examples of the reflector part of the torch and a selection of designs.
