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.

 Our fantastic new theme for July and August 2018 is Superheroes

Superheroes. The featured theme for July and August is the engaging topic of Superheroes.  Superheroes have always fascinated children. They love to play superheroes and take on their favourite role; they love to watch superheroes on TV and at the cinema and they love to read about them also. We have 30 superb themed websites on offer, some are KS1, some are KS2 and some are suitable for EYFS.

Most of the themed resources are cross-curricular although there are some which are specific to maths and English, creative writing. Collectively, the resources cover:  the most popular superheroes, their powers, their biographies, superhero presentations and booklists, real super heroes and much more besides. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this tremendously interesting theme and any superhero classroom topic.

 

 

The featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year.  Watch out for our super Anglo Saxons resources coming in September 2018!
