Science KS1

Links to View/Download the papers below will be active only if you are logged in as a subscriber to Parents in Touch (i.e. not if you are a guest or registered user).

Children in Key Stage 1 love to experiment and are naturally curious. They ask questions about what to do, why does this happen? How do I do that? - all of this should be encouraged. They love to explore the world around them..."Look I have found a snail!" Often they compare objects. This is a big brick but this one is smaller! They will play games such as 'I spy' or 'Spot the difference'. Encourage them to notice patterns and to carry out simple comparisons - such as this ball is bigger than this one.

Here are some pages based on the requirements of the new curriculum introduced in September 2014.

Children love to ask questions such as:

  • Why does soap sink?
  • My slide is slippery?
  • Who eats what?...a lion ...a dog etc
