Week commencing 20th April

OL: Recognise the factors that effect circuits


I can draw a circuit using symbols.  

I can change diagrams dependent on how a circuit changes.

Go to Switched on science - LGFL. This term we are starting our new topic of electricity, so explore the year 6 section called 'Electrifying'. 

Watch the first 30 seconds of the pupil video summarising circuits. We will explore the rest of the video next week. 

  • In your home learning book, draw all the symbols that have been introduced (cell, bulb, wire, switch) labelling them below.
  • Draw a digram showing a simple circuit with a bulb, ensuring you draw it so that the bulb will light up.

Extension: If you're still looking for some fun electricity videos and challenges, go to Wow Science and search electricity.
