Teaching Ideas and Resources - Year 4 Science

In this section, you will find a selection of lesson ideas and teaching resources. We stress that these are not full or prescriptive yearly overviews, unit plans, interactive whiteboard resources or worksheets — they are suggestions of ideas for implementing Core Knowledge UK in the classroom. We are continually developing new resources and adding them to the website. If you have any additional resources you would like to share with us or if you have any questions or comments, please email them to Emma at
