Oliver and the Sowberrys

Here is a reading comprehension about Charles Dickens. Choose your level.
Today we are going to look at perspective again and try to add more detail to the street scene we started last week.


Science - The Results!

Hi Class 6, In week  1 I asked you to find some questions to ask using the equipment that I gave you. ( One cell and as many bulbs and wires as you wanted). The children in school also came up with some questions and then tested their predictions, some of their questions may have been the same as yours. Below I have attached photographs of their results. Take a look and see what they found out.

If I add longer wires into a circuit what will happen to the brightness of the bulb?

The Result:

The brightness of the bulb didn't change as the wires were lengthened.

If I add more bulbs to the circuit what will happen to the brightness of the bulbs?

Mrs Marshall's Challenge:

I asked you last week to predict what would happen to the brightness of the bulbs in the circuits below, what did you find out?
