Science KS2

Here are some pages based on the requirements of the new curriculum introduced in September 2014. Many more are available through the Worksheet Finder. Children of all ages love to experiment. They love to play with water, sand or play dough - create pictures, make people, animals, and shapes and even pretend food for you to "eat!" This experimentation continues with LEGO; shapes in the form of jigsaws; sounds, light and friction.

These pages are based on the pre-2014 science curriculum. These topics still remain part of the curriculum, but may now be taught in a different sequence. They include teaching suggestions, outlines of the topics and activities.

Unit 3A Teeth and eating
Students learn about healthy eating, how to keep healthy, and how the body works. They are taught about teeth and how to care for them.

Unit 3B helping plants to grow well
Pupils learn to grow plants, flowers and food from seeds and bulbs. They are especially happy if they can eat some of the plants that they grow! Try growing peas, beans or even strawberries.

Unit 3C Characteristics of materials
Pupils are taught about different types of materials and their characteristics. They need to learn that it is necessary to choose the correct material for any particular job. If you need a material to be waterproof the fabric must prevent water permeating it.

Unit 4D Solids, liquids and how they can be separated
Do you know that when you put sugar in your tea it dissolves? Find out why below. Snowflakes fall and cover the ground but then they melt. Most liquids shrink as they freeze so the frozen solid is smaller than in liquid form.

Unit 4E Friction
Friction is a force which slows movement. The brakes on a car are applied when a driver wants to stop the car. The brakes stop the wheels from moving. When you ride your bicycle you apply the brakes to slow down or to stop moving.

Unit 5A Keeping healthy
Keeping fit and healthy is an important part of looking after your joints. You can do this by exercising, eating a balanced diet and taking care of your body. It is to fun to run and play, to enjoy football, netball or swimming. It is good to play in a team and to exercise with friends.

Unit 5B Life cycles
Life cycle of a butterfly is fascinating. The butterfly lays an egg which turns into a caterpillar. The caterpillar eats many leaves and grows strong, before turning into a cocoon. After a long sleep in the cocoon a new creature starts to emerge and a beautiful butterfly appears.

Unit 5C Gases around us
Gases are all around us and some we could not live without. The air is a mixture of gases, mostly oxygen and nitrogen. There are also smaller amounts of water vapour, argon and carbon dioxide as well as small amounts of other gases

Unit 5D Changing state
There are three states of matter which are solids, liquids, and gases. The water cycle gives us water to drink, but can also be found as a solid state such as ice or a gas in the form of water vapour. This moves around the environment in a process known as the water cycle.

Unit 6B Micro-organisms
Micro organisms are very tiny living things. They are all around us in the air, on and in our bodies and in water. Some are helpful to us and others are more harmful in the form of viruses, bacteria and fungi. Bacteria left in your mouth by not brushing your teeth properly can cause tooth infection. Mould is a type of microorganism.

Unit 6C More about dissolving
This is about the reversible changes of the physical state of certain materials, such as dissolving, melting and re-solidifying. Some materials can be separated into their constituent elements by evaporation or filtering.

Unit 6D Reversible and irreversible changes
These worksheets provide explanations of reversible and irreversible changes in materials. Reversible changes include the evaporation and condensation or the freezing and thawing of liquids. Irreversible changes are those that cannot be undone, including for example the burning of combustible materials such as wood, coal or other fuels or for example the cooking of eggs.
