Welcome to the Teacher Zone

Here you will discover that all of our PowerWise lesson ideas are interactive, engaging and linked to the English, Welsh and Scottish national curricula.

Lesson plans spanning from EYFS to KS4 have clear learning objectives and success criteria that will challenge, engage and inspire your childrens’ learning. Whilst some of them are purely science related, others focus solely on aspects of responsibility, choices and safety both inside and outside the home. All lessons, however, are cross-curricular and can slot in to many medium term plans and topic work.

Children in Early Years and Primary will become familiar with our characters, Ollie and Sparky, who will encourage discussion and reinforce learning objectives in an engaging and fun way. Secondary lesson ideas encourage the use of the latest web 2.0 sites and have activities with a relevant 21st Century focus. Where possible, learning has been linked to exam questions. Lesson ideas can be taught in order to form a learning journey or you can ‘dip in’ and choose lessons that fit in to your medium term planning - it’s entirely up to you!

However you choose to teach these free and inspiring lesson plans, you can be sure that through their inventiveness, originality and focus on ‘hands on’ learning, your class will be focused on their learning and be left with memorable life skills, and why? Because quite simply, they make learning about electricity irresistible!
