The KS1 Science area covers life processes and living things including humans and animals, green plants, variation and classification, and looking at animals in their environment and habitat.
Children are able to enhance their Key Stage 1 learning about the human body and the importance of keeping healthy and are able to research different animal types such as birds, mammals, reptiles and fish.
The KS1 Science Materials and Their Properties section enables children to investigate changing materials and includes numerous activities to help them learn about grouping materials.
The Physical Processes section helps children to learn about Electricity including circuits and their elements; forces and motion including friction, magnets and springs, and forces in action like push and pull. Light and Sound are also covered within this KS1 Science area.
Children can carry out the @school assessment tests to test their knowledge of the different areas of KS1 Science.
