Developing Science: Year 5 Developing Scientific Skills and Knowledge by Christine Moorcroft


Developing Science: Year 5 Developing Scientific Skills and Knowledge by Christine Moorcroft

These are the final two titles in a series of seven photocopiable science activity books for primary schools and home study. The books provide activities to support the teaching of science in the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. These activities are designed to develop children's skills in scientific investigation and to encourage them to use those skills in furthering their knowledge and understanding. The activities are presented in a way which stimulates children's interest and enthusiasm in the world around them, and which links scientific principles to everyday observations and phenomena.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
