Year 6 Electricity Knowledge Organiser!

This clear, detailed and visually-appealing resource offers a complete reference point for Year 6 children, teachers and parents covering knowledge relating to ‘Electricity’, as a part of their science learning. It contains comprehensive sections on:

What you should already know (from prior learning);
Circuit Diagrams;
Electrical Safety;
Variation Components;
Key Vocabulary.

The content is fully aligned with the NC expectations for Year 6 children relating to ‘Electricity:’
-Associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and
voltage of cells used in the circuit
-Compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the
brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches
-Use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram.

The resource is designed to be printed onto A3, and is provided as both a PDF and a Word version (so that you can edit if you want to). All images used are licensed for commercial use and are cited on a separate document (included).
