Your child will learn about the properties of different materials the whole way through primary school, in increasingly complex detail.
In this section of the site you'll find material worksheets to try at home with your child, such as sorting materials into sets, materials to build a house, and comparing matrials. Why not go on a materials treasure hunt?
You'll find even more science experiments to bring out the little Einstein in your child in our Experiments and science fun pack.
Plus, check out the fantastic Science Learning Journey for each year of primary school.
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.
