Please find some really useful home learning resources for Science. There are some really engaging and exciting activities for children to be doing at home.
The Great Bug Hunt Competition
A simple, curriculum linked habitat competition open to children and their parents during lockdown
(following ‘Stay Home’ guidelines). This would be particularly useful for Y2 and Y4 children.
PSTT and Science sparks resources for schools
The Primary Science Teaching Trust is working with Science Sparks to create activities for children to have some fun with science at home.. Each two page sheet has activities that are: clear and simple, using household resources; accessible and manageable for all; fun for children and their families to do; linked to follow up activities; We will send out a new Science Fun at Home every ...
This provides some excellent practical learning opportunities with clear guidelines and basic science
background for parents. It is focused more on the skills of Working Scientifically rather than specific concepts
and units of science.
- Science Fun at Home
- Engineering Our World (famous Scientists)

Wild Days from Earth Watch https://www.wild-days.org/
- Daily video and related activities linked to exploring the outdoors specially produced in accordance with ‘Stay at Home’ guidelines.
Wild Days is completely free for you to enjoy from Monday 20 April. All you need to do is sign up and get wild! Our resources are free from Water Week onwards, because that’s when we received the generous support of the Tomoro Foundation, Tanya and Michael Rembaum, and Neville Shulman to fund the future of Wild Days.
I will be uploading a new section with a science activity or experiment each week for each year group. I hope you enjoy these challenges. Please remember they can be completed however you want and you do not have to follow all of the instructions. If you see something you would like to investigate or try but belongs to a different year group please have a go!
