Year 4 - Starters for Science* Suitable for Home Learning*

Starters for science provides easy to run science activities suitable for children from 8-10 years of age.  They are been created to support teachers to ensure that any gaps in science knowledge and understanding may be filled in a fun and easy way. They link to the National Curriculum topics in Year 4 and have been designed to support learning in topics that may have been missed due to the school closures.  Each sheet contains key vocabulary, key learning points and easy to resource activities that provide children with the stimulus to explore and investigate the world around them.  With these sheets, a teacher can pick a topic from the previous year and use it to support learning with children in their class either in school or at home.

These activities have been provided by STEM Learning.
