Introduction

Moving up with science has been written to follow on from Ways into Science and support children with their Lower Key stage 2 Science work. There are activities and questions on almost every spread which provide children with opportunities to develop their science enquiry skills and their critical thinking skills. These are identified at the back of each book so you can plot and monitor the children’s progress in science skill development.

The Moving Up with Science series links to Ways into Science series and Straight Forward with Science series to provide a twenty five book science library resource for the UK National Curriculum for Science.
