This half term we have a selection of Science activities to choose from on the grid below to complete each week. Be as creative as you want to be!

Summer 1, Materials 

In this science topic we will investigate the uses of everyday materials in and around our homes.



Lots more information available on BBC Bitesize - KS1 Science - Materials


Week 1, beginning 20.4.20, 

Identifying Materials and their Uses


1. Look at the Everyday Materials Photo Cards. Can you name the materials and say what they are used for.

Week 2, beginning 27,4,20

Uses of Everyday Materials Out and About


1. For this investigation you will be doing your science learning outside. You will need to go on a short walk in your local area and look out for everyday materials being used in different ways. If you wish you can take photographs, or draw the different materials you see.


Challenge - Can you sort the uses of different materials into different groups.



Week 3, beginning 4.5.20

Changing Materials

Materials can change when they are heated or cooled down. They can change from a solid to a liquid, or a liquid to a solid.


1. Can you investigate what will happen to  an ice cube when it is taken out of the freezer?  Where can you put an ice cube to melt the fastest? Test it by putting ice cubes in different places around your house.


2. What happens when you hold a piece of chocolate in your hand? Is the change permanent? Can you change the chocolate back into a solid? If so, how?


Challenge - Can you think of any other materials that change from a solid to a liquid or liquid to solid?

Week 4, beginning 11.5.20
