These Pupil Prompts provide teachers with prompt cards for the children for the KS2 unit on electricity, with lessons in Year 4 and Year 6, as well as brief D&T suggestions for Years 4, 5 and 6. Year 4: 7 Pupil Prompts for 3 lessons (or any suitable arrangement) on making circuits, making switches and testing conductivity. Making circuits (4 Pupil Prompts): In this lesson children will learn how to make simple circuits, which will make different components work. Making switches (2 Pupil Prompts): In this lesson children will learn how to what a switch does and how to make switches. Conductivity (1 Pupil Prompt): In this unit children will learn how to test for electrical conductivity. They will carry out investigative science to test for electrical conductivity and sort materials according to electrical conductivity. Year 6: 2 Pupil Prompts on understanding voltage. Voltage: In this lesson children will investigate what happens when the number of components are varied in a circuit and understand electrical voltage. Remember to begin lessons 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.
