Teachers support for Science
For help with the structure and delivery of Hamilton’s Science Sessions, see our Science Teacher Support page.
Learn all about electrical circuits and test materials ability to conduct electricity. Put your knowledge of circuits on display by building your own circuit to create a buzz-wire game. Then use your game to try to defeat a challenger. Who can remain ‘disconnected’ on the game? You will need to impress with your electrical knowhow.
Hamilton’s Science scheme is new for 2016-17. It provides children with a broad but comprehensive experience of primary Science that systematically covers all of the National Curriculum objectives. Each year group is split into 6 blocks of 6 sessions, each of which can be completed within a half-term. We present them in a recommended teaching order, but you may adapt this to fit your requirements. Working scientifically, investigations and meaningful outcomes are fully incorporated in each block.
Currently, the complete set of Autumn and Spring sessions are available, with Summer sessions available by February. See each year group’s Overview for a taste of what’s to come!
Challenge your knowledge and misconceptions about electricity by exploring a number of electrical games and devices.
Using an interactive resource, discover electrical dangers around the home and create a poster warning others of these dangers.
Learn about circuits and how to represent them in proper scientific diagrams.
Conduct your own experiment, testing different materials to see whether or not they complete your circuits.
Put your knowledge of circuits on display by building your own circuit.
It’s time to use your game to try to defeat a challenger. Who can remain ‘disconnected’ on the game? You will need to impress with your electrical knowhow.
