Energy appears in different forms including movement (kinetic energy), heat, light, chemical energy and potential energy; devices can change energy from one form to another
  1. recognising that kinetic energy is the energy possessed by moving bodies
  2. recognising that potential energy is stored energy, for example, gravitational, chemical and elastic energy
  3. using flow diagrams to illustrate changes between different forms of energy
  4. investigating the energy transformations in devices, for example, a catapult or a water wheel
