How Our Home Appliances REALLY Work!

Our topic this term is inventions. For the last couple of weeks, we have been writing about how electrical appliances work  - as this also links into our science focus of circuits and our topic of inventions.

Perhaps you thought that inside your dishwasher was a complicated electrical circuit. You were wrong! Year 5/6 have been thinking of ways to explain how the electrical appliances in your house REALLY work. For example, a few of us explained how an octopus washes your dishes, or how gnomes run your washing machine!

After drawing what our electrical appliances look like from the inside, we wrote explanation texts explaining how they work. (We had to make sure that we weren’t writing instructions though!)

We were all very pleased with the end results.
