Year 4 Science
Practise the concepts your child is investigating in school with our Year 4 science worksheets and help them develop their skills of ‘scientific enquiry’ (examining ideas and evidence, using investigative techniques and drawing conclusions based on evidence).
You’ll find lots of hands-on activities to help your child grasp core topics, such as humans, other animals and plants, properties of materials, electricity and forces.
