In place of the traditional regional conference usually held by the Association for Science Education, this year the team delivered an online Teachmeet, focused on supporting Primary educators to deliver STEM learning during this difficult time.
Lots of exciting resources were shared and we’ve listed some of our favourites below:
The Royal Society of Chemistry have some fantastic online resources including their Science idea webs – medium-term, cross-curricula planning tools which can help you to embed science in lessons using popular topics such as space, the Romans, World War II and even the Stone Age. They also provide a variety of possible biology, chemistry and physics links for you to choose from. The easiest way to access all of their resources is to sign up for a free account, which you can do here.
The Primary Science Teaching Trust have developed some excellent resources including:
- Science For One – activity sheets to support teachers with providing practical science lessons while children are sitting separately from each other or working outside,
- Science at Home – simple and engaging practical science activities to support learning at home. The activities are open ended and adaptable for any age
- Science at Work – two page activity sheets about past scientists or people who worked in science related jobs, and opportunities to ‘meet’ them will be available to book through Spectrum Drama.
And our very own Regional Champion for the Great Science Share, Liz Southwell, shared the online resources available to help schools during this years campaign, which is themed on Climate Change. Get your pupils asking some great scientific questions with these Question Makers.
