In Science, we will be exploring the question: ‘Can you be the next Nintendo apprentice?’; By the end of this unit, we are aiming for the children to be able to:
- use a range of recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram
- compare and give reasons for why components work and do not work in a circuit
- know how the number and voltage of cells in a circuit links to the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer
- know how to plan different types of scientific enquiry
- use the outcome of test results to make predictions and set up a further comparative and fair tests
- measure accurately and precisely using a range of equipment
- report findings from enquiries in a range of ways
Within our D.T tasks, we are aiming for the children to develop their skills and answer these questions:
- Can you incorporate a switch into your product?
- Can you refine your product after testing it?
- Can you evaluate appearance and function against the original criteria?
