Y6 Conductor or Insulator?

Pupils construct and record a circuit using recognised symbols before predicting and recording whether or not a number of everyday materials will act as a conductor or insulator when placed in the circuit.

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, for example, switches, bulbs, buzzers and motors. They should learn how to represent a simple circuit in a diagram using recognised symbols.
  • WS -  planning different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary
