Resources
Worksheet 1: Energy or not energy.
Worksheet 2: Standby.
Worksheet 3: Energy diary.
A range of art equipment for posters.
Teaching activities
Ask children what they already know about energy. Create a mind map. Explain that electricity is a
form of energy and that the energy we use in our school and homes comes from burning fossil fuels –
coal, oil and gas. Tell the class that it’s important that we cut back on the energy we use where
possible, because these fossil fuels will eventually run out.
Ask the children to point out things in the classroom that use energy.
Create a class list of things that use energy and things that do not use energy.
Show children Worksheet 2: Standby. Ask key questions and elicit the answer that energy is still being
used. (If possible, model to children turning an appliance on and off and leaving it on standby.) Let
children know that leaving appliances on standby wastes energy.
Introduction (WALT) using

Differentiated
activities
SEN/G&T
Plenary
Before undertaking these activities, it’s essential to remind children how to be safe around electricity.
In groups, pupils should investigate things that use energy in school, which they can add to their earlier
sorting activity in class.
More able children could record the number of lights, computers etc are in each class using the tally sheet.
SEN to have adult support.
G & T to look for appliances on standby.
What things at home use energy? How often are they used? Are any items left on standby? Why? Show
children the energy diary and explain how they should use them for homework and follow-up activity.
AfL assessment
opportunities
(WILF)
Can children identify appliances/things that do and do not use energy? Are the children able to identify
ways energy can be saved?
Extension/
homework
Create a bar chart using information found during the main activity.
Follow-up
lessons
Use energy diary (Worksheet 3)
Children should design labels to stick on appliances teaching others to switch them off when they’re
not in use. Distribute them to classes, to the management office and communal areas in the school.
Whole-school
activity
Set up a Green Schools Revolution committee in your school and look at ways in which you can
save energy.
Conduct an energy audit.
Create a campaign to reduce energy and water consumption in your school.
