For science this week we are going to be looking at switches and how they work. 


TASK: Read through the PowerPoint attached and then complete the worksheet.


The PowerPoint will take you through the parts of the circuit once more and then get you to think about what switches you might find in your house. On slide 6 there are a few questions for you to think about. 


There are many different types of switches. Have a go at matching the pictures to the correct switch name on slide 7. I wonder how may of these switches you have seen before. 


On slide 8 you will learn about how a switch actually works and learn about the science behind it.
