Spring Term One: Electricity 

This unit introduces electricity, what we use it for, how it behaves and how we must use it safely. Pupils will explore circuits, asking and answering questions about how electricity behaves and what is needed to create a complete circuit. Pupils will learn about the the differences between batteries and mains electricity and will understand how our electricity system is connected across the country and beyond. Finally, Pupils will work scientifically to investigate conductive and non-conductive materials. They will make predictions, plan and undertake an investigation and will explain learn findings.
