This topic we will be:

•  Identifying common appliances that run on electricity

•  Constructing a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers

•  Identifying whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery

•    Recognising that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit

•    Recognising  some common conductors and insulators, and associate metals with being good conductors.

In Maths, we will be developing our understanding of angles. We will measure them using protractors and also be drawing them.
