In Science this term, we will be learning about electricity.  Each week, the lesson will be shared on the site 'Developing Experts'. 


Unit Summary

This unit ‘Electricity’ takes children through six lessons where they learn how to: identify common appliances that run on electricity; construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers. 

Children also learn how to: identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery; recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit; 

Finally, recognise some common conductors and insulators, and associate metals with being good conductors.


Your child will have a login to the lessons on developing experts.
