Year 5 Science
You can support your child at home as they develop their skills of ‘scientific enquiry’ with hundreds of Year 5 science worksheets and experiments on core topics including humans and other animals, plants, thermal insulators and electrical conductors, rocks and soils, electricity and circuits, forces, light and sound, sound and vibration and pitch and volume.
Plus, for a complete course in Year 5 science, check out our fantastic Year 5 Science Learning Journey programme.
Discover a complete learning programme that covers all the core science skills that your child must master by the end of Year 5. This comprehensive programme enables you to cover every topic in the curriculum with just one 10-minute worksheet every week at home.
Get started on the Year 5 Science Learning Journey and by doing just a few minutes of fun work each week with your child at home, you will inspire their learning, fire up their hunger for knowledge… and ensure they're not only on top of their lessons but brimming over with facts and actively contributing to classes.
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.
Science can not only lead to well-paid and exciting jobs (think doctor, sports technologist, space craft engineer), it also opens up children’s minds to new ideas and encourages a curiosity about the world around them. Here are some fun activities that you can do with your child to inspire their interest in science.
