A comprehensive update to a successful series, specifically designed to support the new science curriculum at upper KS2.
Straight Forward with Science offers a straightforward, but fun, approach to key science learning. Each book explores basic scientific principles and shows them in action, while simple activities and experiments bring the science to life.
Materials and Properties looks at what materials are and how we use them differently according to their properties. Solids, liquids and gases, mixing, separating and changing materials and matter are all also explored.
