Electricity unit of work with sheets yr4

Electricity unit of work with sheets yr4

I made this smart board and corresponding booklet unit of work for my year 4 class last year. I used it again this year and made some adjustments to it as needed. Electricity is such a fun topic for children and this booklet and smart allows them to combine their knowledge of electrical circuits with design elements. There are work sheets included for a whole term as well as a brief smart too. We used it to build their knowledge gradually of circuits, and then how to properly draw a circuit and add buzzers, motors and lights. It all culminated in a final design project where they needed to follow a specification of a house that needed a doorbell, light bulb and a switch! They absolutely loved this and it is also a National Curriculum requirement for this year group.

Electrical Hazard Activity. Year 7 + lots of differentation and activities. Created for lesson ob

Love this lesson - Planning includes differentiation suitable for mixed abilities. PowerPoint includes visuals to support understanding. Informative and meaningful lesson. Includes: Lesson plan PowerPoint - informative with whole class activity Fill in the missing the word - electrical hazard activity Spot the electrical hazard activity I also set up an area with real hazards, surprised to see how students can spot hazards in a classroom, but not in a real life scenario. Received - excellent for my lesson observation. Easy to adapt for your students…

Take It Apart Club

Take It Apart Club

Take It Apart Club was designed for Year 5 & 6. Pupils take apart broken electrical items such as telephones, tablets, sandwich toasters. They use tools to do so, with assistance from staff where needed. The sheets help to identify common components which they are likely to find. Please see the rules for information concerning your Risk Assessment. Our pupils wore eye protection. The aim was to harness the pupils curiosity and increase familiarity with tools. It was hoped they would learn some components but this was not enforced in a lunchtime club.

Vikings: Battle Modifications with Working Scientifically with littleBits LKS2

Children will look at the history of Viking warfare and weapons during their invasion of the United Kingdom. Children will then design their own defence or weapon modification with littleBits based on Viking design. In the past, I have introduced this lesson dressed as a Monk in a Monastery with the lights off and candles lit. I play audio in the background of Monks singing (link provided) before acting frightened at the arrival of Vikings coming ashore (link provided).
