This is the first in a series of science books produced by Galore Park; consisting of three junior science books and followed by the ‘So you really want to learn Science?’ books, aimed at older children. Galore Park excel at producing excellent educational books and this is no exception. This book, Junior Science 1, is aimed at Year 3 children and, in fact, most Galore Park books are for Key Stage 2. The three Junior Science books are designed for Year 3 to Year 5 and are excellent for home schooling or to supplement work at home. Together, they give an excellent foundation in science and cover everything, and more, that your child will need to know.
These books are not workbooks as such and you will need a blank exercise book for writing answers (some can be written in the book, but most require longer written answers). This particular book covers the following: our bodies, vertebrates and invertebrates, rocks, magnets, light and shadows and materials. Each chapter is well laid out, packed with colourful photographs and diagrams and with exercises to reinforce knowledge, as well as extension questions to challenge children. Answers are available via the Galore Park website (the address is included in the book). If you are looking for an excellent resource to teach science, this is probably the best on the market and the whole Galore Park range of books are highly recommended.
