Don't use a model that suggests charged particles come from the battery
It's very easy to say;
Teacher: a current of 1.4 ampere flows from the supplyor
Teacher: a current of 1.4 ampere is drawn from the supply.
Once again these words imply that the current originates in the battery and it is better to say something like
There is a current of 1.4 ampere in the wires of the big loop and in the supply.
