During Key Stage 2, children increasingly encounter abstract scientific ideas which may not readily lend themselves to practical investigation. Rather than reverting to a worksheet on such occasions, provide children with opportunities to explore tricky concepts and use relevant scientific vocabulary through a variety of role-play activities. From getting inside a circuit to becoming a state of matter; drive children’s learning forward in these enjoyable – and memorable – ways.
