KS1 Science Ideas

About This Primary Resource

A very useful document about teaching science in Key Stage 1 (KS1), including lots of hints and tips to help keep children interested in science and motivated to learn. When children make the move to primary school and classes take on more of a structure, they can quickly lose interest for the subject that was previously all about play.

This resource has been very kindly shared with us by Classroom Carrots, a brilliant website that helps teachers to manage behaviour, motivate pupils and encourage engagement through a colourful, easy to use online app. Classroom Carrots is an easy way to reward good behaviour in your class by awarding virtual stickers to and deducting points for bad behaviour.

This website is completely free to use and we love it! Go to the Classroom Carrots website to find out more.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.
