Science      Medium Term Planning – Spring 2  (year 4)     Activity Learning objectives Children learn: Core vocab Resources Learning outcomes Children: 1 Circuits Make a mind map of what children already know about electricity  and circuits – whole class ideas on IWB. Show children a CD player – How can we make the CD player  work? Which would be the best way to use it in the  classroom/garden? Provide the children with wires, bulbs, buzzers, batteries (cells). Can  they name these components and guess the purpose of each in a  circuit? Set children a challenge to make: A circuit using a cell and one bulb so that the bulb lights  up A circuit using a cell so that two bulbs light up Discuss the brightness of the bulbs in each circuit. Can children  explain why the brightness of the bulbs differs? Provide children with drawings of circuits and ask them to explain  which will work and which will not.  Ask children to draw and annotate a complete circuit and indicate  the purpose of each part. E.g. the battery provides the  power/electricity. Discuss the dangers of electricity – look at devices which run on  batteries and those which require electricity.  Point out that batteries can be used for investigation but appliances connected to the mains must not.    that a circuit needs a  power source  that a complete circuit is  needed for a device to work  that circuits powered by batteries can be used for investigation and experiment, appliances connected to the mains must not Battery Bulb Cell Circuit Electricity Lead CD player Cells Wires Bulbs Bulb holders Crocodile clips Pictures of circuits explain why devices in some  circuits shown in drawings 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  identify the purpose of components  in a circuit  2 Insulators and conductors Show the children a plastic covered lead and ask them: that some materials are  Circuit 4F PM1 construct a circuit to test which
