Y6 Investigating Circuits

Pupils look at a number of circuit diagrams and predict which ones will work and illuminate a bulb. Pupils then make each circuit to investigate their predictions.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram
  • NaG -building on their work in year 4, pupils should construct simple series circuits, to help them to answer questions about what happens when they try different components
  • WS - systematically identifying the effect of changing one component at a time in a circuit
