Scientific Vocabulary for Key Stage One

This resource contains lists of the key vocabulary used in many of the topics studied at primary level. Aimed originally at the five to seven age range, the lists could also be used to support older children learning these topics.

The thirteen vocabulary lists cover the topics of: plants, forces and movement, materials and their properties, health and growth, light, sound, electricity, variation and living things and their habitats. Within each topic there are also word mats which help to develop an understanding of key scientific words.

The resource, provided by Sheffield City Council, is part of a set of vocabulary lists produced for primary learners.
