Snap Science has been created by a team of leading experts to give subject leaders and teachers the confidence to develop a new scheme of work for science for their school which clearly meets the aims of the new National Curriculum for Science. This collection provides sample activities for each Year group at primary level. The activities are:
- EYFS- Observation of earthworms and building a wormery
- Year1- Observation of how trees change over a year
- Year 2- Identification of plants and animals in habitats over a year
- Year 3- Observation of how leaves and seeds on different trees over a year
- Year 4- Classification of plants over a year
- Year 5- Life cycles of plants and of reproduction
- Year 6- Observation of animal behaviour at different times over a year.
This resource has been provided by Collins, and is part of the Snap Science scheme of work.

Aimed at 6-7 year olds, this resource provides two activities which support learning about animals in their habitats. Children carry out a series of visits to local habitats over the course of a year, where they look at and identify some of the animals and plants found there. In a second activity, children...
Aimed at 7-8 year olds, this resource provides two activities which support learning about plants. Children plan to carry out six visits to an evergreen and a deciduous tree over a year to see how their leaves change over time. They choose the trees they will visit and observe and record key features about...
