Year 5 Science worksheets

Get started for free to track and monitor progress.

Your child can learn, practice and test their year 5 (age 9 - 10) science skills with these automatically marked interactive year 5 science worksheets. Covering the whole syllabus, our resources aim to help you with homeschooling or just to give your child a bit of extra help. This year they'll be working towards developing the following Upper Key Stage 2 topics in the year 5 science curriculum; 


Describing the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird, describing the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals, describing the changes as humans develop to old age, comparing everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity, using knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated through filtering, sieving and evaporating, describing the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system, explaining that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity. By creating resources that cover every category, (including year 5 solar system and year 5 forces worksheets,) you can be sure your child doesn’t miss out on anything.


Below you'll find a list of interactive and printable year 5 science worksheets, assessments and revision materials by topic which have been designed by teachers to help your child improve their understanding and comprehension of the topics taught in schools. All of our resources have been designed by our UK team of teachers to build on the foundation of knowledge your child learnt in year 4 science.


Our year 5 science exercises are 100% aligned to the National Curriculum and can provide you visibility to your child's progress throughout the year, designed to work as a homeschooling resource or alongside traditional education available as PDFs and online.
