Primary Science Resource Packages

Everyone studying GCSE-level science is welcome to join our lessons, whether you’re taking the course at school, college or remotely. The sessions are for different stages of learning – whether you’re partway through the course or close to completing it. To help all GCSE-level students continue to engage with Science learning, our lessons are taughy byPrimrose Kitten, an experienced Science teacher with a passion for helping students to achieve their best. To help manage the ongoing disruption of Covid-19, and support GCSE teaching and learning, we are offering a series of free on-demand lessons for English, Maths and Science.

For instance, when we teach digestion to our year 8s we will now build in a 5-minute VR activity. And in our Space module, when we’re learning about the different planets and the solar system, we can spend 5 or 10 minutes of the lesson taking them on a trip to some planets and stars. The lesson plans are based on the 6 steps of our INVESTIGATIVE FRAMEWORK and are supported by a number of worksheets and a PowerPoint presentation.

Many of these items are made to order and so usually take longer to arrive than products delivered from our warehouse. Further details about typical delivery times can be found in the product information below. This is a suggested activity that you may want to use in the classroom to demonstrate how food moves through the body. If you’ve used the resources and are not currently a member of the ASE, we would also urge you to consider joining the association. As a charity, the ASE relies on the continued support of its membership to make resources such as these freely available…

Promote critical thinking and good teamwork among secondary students with… Tests, writing frames and other assessment tools to help you… Collection of 81 Taboo game cards covering keywords from KS3 Year 8 Science. Included is a blank template which can be printed off and given to your students to fill out to build your collection. Cards can be printed double-sided straight from PowerPoint to produce a colourful game card which c… First, start with what you want your students to know and do.

Workbooks, activities and revision mats to help less-able science pupils… 60 questions designed to be used for year 7 students and based on the topic of “Muscles and Bones”. Two teams/students playing against each other, student answers a question they colour in the question circle, if they get 4 in a row they win a point. A fun science challenge to print out on a single A3 for students to complete. Contains elements of biology, chemistry and physics in fun challenges.

Each activity is based on one of the 17 SDGs and includes core knowledge, critical thinking, purposeful activity, cross-curricular initiatives and much more. Each lesson can be accessed as a PowerPoint document, which can be downloaded for tailoring to your own lesson requirements or for saving as a pdf document to send out to pupils. The key learning objectives are aligned to the National Curriculum for England but we have aimed to choose topics which are relevant to learners across the UK. There is guidance for parents, explanations of key concepts, suggested activities for pupils and examples of possible learning outcomes to make it easier for parents to support the learning. Taking account of the unique features and challenges of the primary science curriculum in lesson sequencing and short-term planning.

Currently, fewer than 15% of year olds aspire to pursue a career as a scientist, leaving the UK with a potential skills shortage. The BBC has partnered with leading universities to create a series of child-friendly nationwide scientific investigations. The data gathered will be sent to the universities and will feed into real academic studies. We hope that teachers, pupils and parents will enjoy using these resources and that you will find them useful in what is a challenging time.

We’re offering all UK primary schools a free 21-day trial to EducationCity. May is careers month at Basildon Academies and we’re planning on using some of the CareerExpeditions to allow pupils to ‘shadow’ entomologists, marine biologists and human robot design researchers to see what their jobs involve. Used as a short learning episode, Expeditions can also add a ‘wow’ factor to topics traditionally challenging for student engagement. We can take students on a journey into the world of the microprocessor to learn about computer chips, or visit a large construction during an engineering class to enable them to get a much better perspective of structures. When Google came to our school, two of the first places we chose to take pupils to were inside the human circulatory system and underwater to explore the Great Barrier Reef – places that they’d never traditionally or feasibly be able to visit on a school trip. The kids were so engaged and really started to get a feel for the app – it generated a high level of engagement, driven by the students’ curiosity.

Collins has the resources available to manage the changes and make the transition as smooth as possible for you and your students.
