Space Worksheets

Create an account to track progress and measure results. Genius!

Space is a fascinating topic, and there’s nothing quite like watching your child learn about it for the first time as part of their school work. As an ever-developing subject, your child might be able to benefit from the topics that we cover as part of our space worksheets, in addition to their school work. The curriculum has developed over the years to ensure that astronomical knowledge is not only given to children to cover the necessary space topics for their school work, but also to spark their imagination about this interesting topic! Our supplementary science worksheets are the perfect resources to compound this, with a mixture of useful space revision, test preparation as well as interesting facts and knowledge surrounding the ever-expanding topic of space.

Learn about space worksheets

Developed in conjunction with the National Curriculum, our space worksheets can offer a range of excellent exercises for your child to reinforce their knowledge going forward. Designed to not only be useful, but also fun and interesting to complete, our goal is not only to help your child’s results, but to ensure knowledge remains for the rest of their life. Our space worksheets are divided into year 5 and year 7, as this is where the curriculum is most heavily focussed, hitting both the KS2 and KS3 content respectively.

Our year 5 space worksheets focus on our position in the solar system and giving a good introduction to the topic as a whole. Our worksheets focus on both Earth’s rotation, encompassing the day/night cycle, as well as the general movement of Earth and the planets in our solar system.


Earth’s Rotation - Day & Night:

This gives your child the ability to understand the day and night cycle, what influences it, as well as how the Earth’s rotation and orbit affects our measurement of time. Here we also look to the Earth, Sun and Moon, and identify the planets in our local solar system.


Movement of Earth & Planets:

The orbiting of our Earth around the sun compared to the orbits of planets in our solar system is an interesting topic, influencing a lot in our lives, including how we see changes throughout the year.


The Moon:

Our moon is our planet’s reliable companion, helping shift the tides, providing our first foray into space travel, as well as contributing to cool visual events like a solar eclipse. Our worksheets help knowledge relating to the various functions and consequences of the moon’s orbit around our planet.

Our year 7 space worksheets focus on some more advanced topics in the curriculum, including our understanding of the force of gravity, celestial masses outside of our solar system including stars and galaxies, and how we understand seasons and the impact of the Earth’s tilt.


Gravity Forces:

Gravity shapes how orbits are calculated, why we have a moon orbiting our planet, and why we orbit the sun. It explains why we stand on our fast-spinning planet instead of flying around like astronauts in zero-g are able to do! Our space worksheets help show a preliminary means of understanding universal physics.


Our Sun, Other Stars & Galaxies:

While we appreciate our sun very much, it’s nowhere near the only star in our universe. Thinking on a larger scale, it’s important to consider the presence of other galaxies, stars, where the next nearest star to us is, and how the great size of space affects us.


Seasons & The Earth’s Tilt:

Children are aware of the fact that the season’s change, but may not fully understand why or how space affects them. The Earth’s tilt causes these natural consequences, as when it orbits, the northern and southern hemispheres are closer or further away from the sun. This is why the opposite side of the Earth to us experiences seasons differently. Our space worksheets provide a worthwhile means of breaking down these concepts, helping your child understand the consequences of universal physics as evidenced by the movements of our planet.
