Mauldeth Road Primary School Topic Changing Circuits Years 5 and 6. Term Autumn 2. Year B. Science Medium Term Plan VOCABULARY In this unit children will have opportunities to use: words and phrases relating to electrical circuits eg complete circuit, conductor, insulator, circuit symbol, component, circuit diagram, cell expressions for making and justifying predictions, generalising and summarising. Session Objectives Content and Activities Resources Assessment 1 Week 2 that the brightness of bulbs, or speed of motors, in a circuit can be changed that care needs to be taken when components in a circuit are changed to ensure bulbs/motors do not burn out that there are conventional symbols for components in circuits and these can be used to draw diagrams of circuits Use BBC science clips to show children some working circuits and review the factors which change the brightness of bulbs or speed of motors eg by changing the voltage of the battery, adding extra batteries, components. Demonstrate the effect of overloading a circuit. ask children to construct circuits eg one with two dim bulbs, one where a motor can be switched on and off. Children to draw their circuits on Circuit Drawings and Diagrams worksheet. Introduce circuit diagram symbols. Children to copy them from whiteboard (Circuit Diagram flipchart) then draw circuit diagrams for their circuits on Circuit Drawings and Diagrams worksheet. Extension 1 . Using whiteboards ask children to draw circuit components and check them. Extension 2. Read and answer questions on pages 134-135 in Letts Science Y5-6.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
