This unit is the first introduction to studying electricity in Key Stage 2. Children will learn about what electricity is and how it was discovered. They will identify which appliances use electricity in their homes and how to keep themselves safe. Children will construct circuits, start to create pictorial circuits and conduct an investigation into how easily different types of switches can break and reconnect

We found out how electricity is made in lots of different ways.
We learnt about how important being safe with electricity is.
We learnt the names for the different parts of a circuit including bulb, wire, battery. We were then challenged to make the bulb light. This took lots of trial and error, problem solving and teamwork. We then looked at some pictures of circuits and decided if they would work or not before testing them.
