Key Stage Two Resources
The story of the Siemens brothers, and their involvement in the invention and development of innovative and groundbreaking technology, provides the stimulus for four sets of resources designed for upper primary learners. Each resource contains a sequence of lessons which link to different aspects of science, technology and mathematics. Three of the resources show how science, technology and engineering have shaped the way we live now and how it can shape the way we live in the future. A fourth resource focuses on the human body and enables pupils to explore the body’s systems: Skeleton and Muscles, Digestive system, Respiratory System. Provided by Siemens they include presentations, lesson plans and worksheets.
The topics are:
Clean Silent Trains
Let there be light
Words along Wires
The Human Body
This resource contains three lessons which link to various aspects of energy production and electricity. The lessons are:
The magic of making electricity
Children find out how electricity can be produced and used. They look at examples of hand crank technology and they also identify...
This resource, aimed at primary learners, looks at how science, technology and engineering has shaped the way we live. It is divided into four activities which link to aspects of technology, science and mathematics.
The power of steam
The first part of this activity introduces...
This resource, aimed at primary learners, contains three lessons on skeleton and muscles, digestion and circulation. An interactive simulation, 'Inside the Human Body', explores each of the systems demonstrating their structure and function. It also provides interactive games which support the activities....
This activity links to aspects of energy production and electricity, giving pupils the opportunity to follow instructions to create their own wind turbines. This activity could be included in a lesson focusing on how wind turbines are one of many methods used to produce a sustainable energy source.
