  • Introducing switches in Y4 before asking children to design a burglar alarm.
    This file name is the same as the 'Creating Circuits' PPT. Change the name of the file if you are using both PPTs.

This is the first powerpoint in a series of three for the Y4 Electricity Unit. There are comprehensive teachers notes covering all the electricity work in Key Stage 2 including the notes from this powerpoint. In this lesson children will learn what a switch does and how to make switches. Remember to begin each lesson with a discussion about staying safe with electricity. You may want to start the unit with a lesson on staying safe with electricity, pointing out the difference between mains appliances and battery powered ones.
