Key stage 1 resources

Our youngest pupils are often our most passionate so we have developed some simple resources to help introduce the environment as a topic and increase their knowledge about the role waste has to play.

What is Climate change?

In this presentation we introduce climate change. In this session we learn about our planet, its climate and how our actions impact it.

Why are materials different?

In this science experiment we investigate different material properties, how they can be used to sort materials into groups with similar properties, and how we use this to sort recycling into different bins.
