Conductors and insulators

Year 4 have been learning about conductors and insulators. Following a story they helped Alfie, a power station engineer, find a suitable replacement for a broken cable. It had to be a conductor to allow the electricity to pass through. They investigated a range of items using a simple circuit. They came to the conclusion that metallic based objects were the best conductors and helped Alfie save the day. Great work year 4!
