Year 5 Science worksheets by School Year
When a moving surface slides on a stationary surface it rubs against it, which slows it down. This is due to friction, a force which resists the movement of one object sliding past another. Understand more about friction with a fantastic practical project: make your own balloon hovercraft!
Beans, gingerbread men, ice, washing-up bottles and cocoa powder – that's all you need to demonstrate key KS1 and KS2 science concepts to your child at the kitchen table. Packed with simple experiments, fun games (Muffled Chinese Whispers, anyone?) and parent-friendly science explanations, our Experiments and science fun for KS1 and KS2 learning pack is all you need to make primary science come to life for your child.
A fun worksheet that will help your child grasp the concept of forces.
This experiment that you can do at home helps your child to understand the difference between a reversible change and a non-reversible change.
An ingenious experiment that will demonstrate how day and night occur in simple terms.
A worksheet to encourage children to think about how everyday objects change when they are lit or burnt.
Deepen your child's understanding of gravity and offer an opportunity to illustrate that understanding.
