This site offers lots of resources for teachers, see what is included below:

  • COMPUTER SCIENCE. Programming for real. Intuitive, simple icon-based programming language and tools that encourages solutions design using algorithmic problem solving.
    Example: Define an algorithm to measure and control behaviour and process.
  • SCIENCE.  Learning by doing. Support classroom teaching by using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 to collect real-time data to verify a hypothesis.
    Example: Carry out experiments designed to determine melting points – collect data samples with the temperature sensor and track and plot the results using the intuitive graphing environment.
  • TECHNOLOGY.  Actively engage students. Explore real-life application of technology to make analogies, identify relationships, predict outcome, analyze data and draw conclusions.
    Example: Explore design and functionality by building and programming the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 to carry out controlled actions.
  • ENGINEERING. From idea to working prototype. Engage your students in practical, open-ended engineering challenges and open-ended problem solving.
    Example: Carry out a design process, from brief through testing and analysis to creating functional prototypes that can be easily modified to achieve design goals.
  • MATHEMATICS.  Bringing numbers alive. LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 is an ideal way to explore mathematical problems for real, making abstract concepts tangible and concrete.
    Example: Calculate the wheel circumference of your robot. Then program the robot to move a specific distance using the rotation sensor feedback multiplied by the circumference.

Primary School Teaching Resources

 

The 123HUB is a FREE resource bank and teaching community for primary school teachers. It has been designed to assist teachers in finding good quality online resources. Our aim is to take the effort and guesswork out of finding the best online resources that are available for the primary school curriculum. All of the resources on the 123HUB have been hand picked by teachers.

 

Now over 2600 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our fantastic new featured theme for June 2020 is 'Heroes and Villains'!

 

Our Featured Theme for June 2020 is the fascinating topic of ‘Heroes and Villains. We consider what makes a hero and what might make a villain. We look at the lives of many famous people in history – were they heroes, or were they villains? We also explore superheroes, Olympic athletes and other sporting people, real-life and legendary heroes and heroines and much more besides. All in all, we have 78 super themed websites on offer.

All of our featured themes are made up of a mixture of teaching and investigation resources. They comprise of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support our very engaging and wonderful topics.

 

 

 

 

 

The featured theme is normally updated monthly during the academic year.

Watch out for our great 'Recycling' resources coming in July 2020!

 

 


Recently Archived Themes

April and May 2020

In May, we explored the fascinating world of Railways. We have 40 excellent themed websites on offer, covering: the first engine to travel on a track in 1804, railway development and expansion over the years, including the Industrial Revolution, the Victorian era and the glorious age of steam, taking us right up to the high speed trains that currently thunder along our rail tracks.  We also explore how railways have changed the world of travel and transportation.

As with all of our super featured themes, Railways contains a mixture of teaching and investigation resources. The theme comprises of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this engaging topic.

 

 

 

 

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 school closures, we decided to also keep our ‘Learning and Living at Home’ theme from April on the homepage during the month of May. The popular theme has grown to 62 great resources and we hope that it will continue to prove useful to teachers, parents and children during these challenging times.

The theme contains the following resources:

  • Free Learning Resource Packs
  • PE and Mindfulness Resources
  • Art and Craft Activities
  • Cooking Activities and Recopies
  • Home Learning Advice and Tipsto
  • Free Stories and Applications
  • Non-Curricular Entertainment
  • Free Language Learning Resources
  • And Much More…

We plan to add to these resources during the crisis and if any teachers or parents out there can recommend any quality sites that we can add to the theme and share with others, please let us know at: hub@123ict.co.uk
