LI: To learn about fossil fuels and sustainable energy


Over the past few weeks (before half term) you were learning about plastics and sustainability (Week 6) and the world's resources (Week 7). This week you are going to learn about how we can get energy in different, more sustainable ways.


What are fossil fuels?

Much of the world’s energy is produced by burning fossil fuels such as oilcoal and gas. These natural resources are formed from the remains of plants and animals that died millions of years ago. They are used to power everything from planes to gas cookers.


What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy is a natural source of energy that will never run out. Wind, the Sun and water are renewable energy sources that can be used to create electricity.

Activity 1

Quiz (see link above)


Activity 2

Energy sorting cards

For this activity you can cut out the cards and sort them into renewable and non-renewable energy types. However, it may be more eco-friendly to draw a table on the paper that you already have and copy the cards into the correct column.


Renewable Energy Non-Renewable Energy

Activity 3

What are the advantages and disadvantages of renewable and non-renewable energy? List all the different sources of energy you've learnt about in this lesson and write down the advantages and disadvantages of each. Download and print out the the activity sheet or write down your answers on a piece of paper.


Telling the time

You are confident at using numbers in Spanish so use this knowledge. However, below the activities I have added a YouTube video to help you if you need it. If you don't think you do, complete the sheets first and then watch the video (only 5 minutes long) to check what you have done.
