PARISH CHURCH CE PRIMARY SCHOOL, GAINSBOROUGH TERMLY PLANNING SHEET Subject: Science circuits and conductors Theme: Team: 2 Year : A Term: Summer 1 st half (Term 6 – May-July) Brief Summary of Aims: This unit builds on children’s previous practical experience of making circuits and extends their understanding of circuits, conductors and insulators and the need for a complete circuit in order for a device to work. Children are introduced to ways in which they can vary the current in a circuit. Key Vocabulary: battery, bulb, buzzer, motor, break, electrical conductor, electrical insulator Learning objectives Introduction Activities Plenary Resources Assessment Success Criteria I know that a circuit needs  a power source.  I know that a complete circuit  is needed for a device to work. TP Q – What is a circuit?  Where might  circuits be used? Ask children to look at drawings of circuits  on IWB and decide and explain which will  work and which will not.  Children could  have cards to hold up saying “Will” and  “Wont”. PP “Will this circuit work?”   Discuss children’s choice – how did they  decide which circuits would/wouldn’t work?  What do we think a circuit needs to be able  to work?  Create a list on IWB – We will  come back to this list later and see if we  want to add anything to it or take anything  away from it. Discuss the names of the parts of the circuits  – introduce the term “cell” as the proper  name for the battery part of the circuit.  Briefly discuss what each part of the circuits  job is.   Ask children to make 2 circuits – 1 circuit which  will work, and 1 that wont – Children to record  circuits by drawing, and to annotate their  drawings to indicate the purpose of each part  eg the battery provides the power/electricity. (Teachingideas website worksheet – do you think  it will work?  Construct and test tick or cross.) Sheets – Turn the light on and will it work more  able? http://www.primaryresources.co.uk /science/pdfs/simple_circuit_sheet s.pdf  – images that may be good for sticking  into books to test. Discuss the circuits that the children  have made asking children to explain  why devices in some circuits will  work but devices in other circuits will  not eg the switch is open so there is a  break in the circuit and the bulb  won’t light. Create a flipchart with drawings of  the circuits that did work and those  that didn’t allowing a good chance  for discussion as in the intro.
