Explorify during school closures
Find out how we are working to support teachers and children with their science during school closures and phased reopenings.
We will use this blog to update you on the latest support for teachers, parents, carers and children with their science over the coming weeks.
Explorify at home is a weekly supply of activities for parents and carers to do with their learners at home. It's based on the primary science curriculum, but easy to do at home.
You can explore all of our collections here via the links below. We will update the links with further topics as we publish them.
As pupils start to return to school during phased reopening, we've created some resources to help support teachers. We hope you find the articles linked below useful.
What else can you do?
- Get involved in #ScienceFromHome on Twitter, where we're sharing even more bite-sized activities that children can do from home - like the one in the picture above.
Be part of the Explorify community
- Teachers can join our Explorify Staffroom on Facebook for updates on new content, or to ask a question to the teaching community.
- You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any requests or suggestions for Explorify from home.
Take it further
- Visit STEM Learning, to explore their support for parents and carers with home learning.
- Watch BBC Bitesize Daily. Each Wednesday during school closures, BBC Bitesize will have a programme featuring science related to one of our activity collections. We will add links to watch these to our collections, linked above, as they become available. Previous programmes including versions for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland can be found on the iPlayer.
We are working with our partners in the primary science world to bring you a joined-up, quality experience and will be sharing resources on our social channels as well as on our blogs.
In the meantime, we hope you are all adjusting to your new routines and when you are ready to explore, we will be here to help you.
