Welcome to the SMART Squad schools programme
SMART Squad is a set of flexible, curriculum-linked resources. Developed in partnership with practicing teachers, the free resources provide an engaging lesson with cross-curricular links to science, PSHE, maths and English and aim to help pupils aged 7 to 11 learn about the importance of energy efficiency and smart meters.
The lesson is supported by a PowerPoint presentation, with brief and integrated teacher notes, including all the background information needed to run the lesson, as well as a fun film and activity sheets.
“I would highly recommend the resources to any teacher wanting to teach their class about energy saving and energy efficient behaviours. The resources are easy to access, informative and digestible.” - Lowri Evans, a teacher at Ysgol Bro Hyddgen – Machynlleth, Powys
