Pound Practicals

Pound Practicals

I am passionate about science being accessible to all so designed some affordable science kits. These Pound Practicals have been made to allow parents to work with their kids in a practical way, and have fun in the process.

By completing the go further activities the child will develop their interest in science and teach both children and parents alike. The answers on the back help you to understand the science behind the activities and is also useful for children to link their learning with school and the national curriculum.
