    Just what I was looking for! Moving into Year 4 next term - and did not want to do torches! I had already decided to link the DT to the Victorians - and set a task about lighting up rooms in a Victorian house - so, to find this with planning and resources all prepared has saved me a huge amount of time. Great to have worksheets and Success Criteria to accompany the detailed planning. Thank you so much!
