“How can birds fly?” and “Why do plants have leaves” are common questions in a Year 1 classroom! The wonderful thing about Science is that it rarely needs a hard-sell or a bribe, it’s genuinely engaging!
In Year 1, your child will learn about the seasons, plants, trees, animals (including fish, birds and land bases animals), the human body and everyday materials (e.g. hard or soft, stretchy or bendy etc).
The three workbooks in this Year 1 Science Workout Pack follow what they will learn throughout Year 1 and provide your child with an opportunity to carefully consider what they have learned in the classroom. They’re essentially a slightly more formal children’s activity book that’s all about Science.
The basic formula of the books is to remind your child about a scientific fact in easy to understand language. For example, one fact could be...
“Even if animals look very different there can still be things about them that are the same.”
The book would then ask them to demonstrate their understanding by labelling or circling pictures, counting the number of differences or a number of other, similar activities.
It’s the way that these books keep relevant to your child’s own experiences (as well as their learning) that keeps them engaging and fun to use!
If your child has an interest in Science and likes to ask questions about the world around them, we would highly recommendYear 1 Science Workout Pack. They’re especially fun and rewarding for parents to complete when with their child.
