Primary science resource packages

Our primary science resource packages provide a useful starting point for teachers in planning and delivering science lessons or in supplementing a teacher’s own planning.

Home teaching resources: To support teachers to continue educating young people while they are at home, we have developed a range of materials, including free resources, tips from our subject experts and professional development opportunities.

Activities for families: Explore resources, activities and guidance to support parents and carers of primary-aged children with home learning.


Resources are organised into topic area and year group and include many opportunities for working scientifically. They provide tips for teachers, highlight common misconceptions and offer further suggestions for use in class.

To easily identify resources which can be used at home, look out for the note: *suitable for home teaching* in the name.
