Sparks fly as Year 6 make burglar alarms

On Wednesday 28th September, the children of year 6 were set a challenge by their teachers. Could they design a burglar alarm using all the knowledge and skills they had gained in their Science topic, Electricity.

If the children could defeat the burgling teachers, they could keep the Kitkat they were protecting. If the Kitkat could be stolen without triggering the alarms, the children lost the Kitkat to their greedy teachers!

Many children succeeded in protecting their chocolate bar and the successful designs were varied. The lesson was enhanced by the presence of two Saffron Walden County High teachers, Ms Phillips and Ms Badzine, who were looking at how Primary aged children investigate problems.
