Extraordinary Maths - The Race into Space
Extraordinary Science – Family Science
Family Science is a set of challenges based around the rooms in a house. There are seven challenges for each age range: Living Room, Kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom 1, Bedroom 2, Hall and Garden. All come complete with worksheets – and answer sheets! This resource offers the whole family opportunities to both uncover the science we all use in our everyday lives and think about easy ways that we can all contribute to protecting Planet Earth!
Who is it for?
These activities are ideal for children to complete at home with their parents and carers, or as part of an in-school Family Science event. You will find resources here for four different age ranges: Age 4 – 5… Age 6-7… Age 8 – 9… and Age 10 – 11.
What is included?
All of the resources have been designed in line with curriculum requirements, differentiated for four age bands. The package includes an opening film to introduce the activity and a set of seven printable challenge packs for each age band: Age 4 – 5… Age 6-7… Age 8 – 9… and Age 10 – 11.
How does it work?
Once you have purchased the package you and your colleagues will have access to the whole bank of Family Science resources to use how and when you please. Class teachers can use the structure we have suggested, or work to one of their own. Of course, you don’t have to use the resources as part of a whole-school event. You may want to offer the experience to one key stage, one year group, or even just one class.
