Yoga Xrays and more

As a recent convert to Ashtanga yoga this video has me totally enthralled at how our bodies bend, twist and what various yoga poses look like from a skeletal point of view.

From another perspective, this Youtube channel is brilliant resource for teaching from looking at the various bones, locations of organs etc in Keystage 1 science to looking at types of joints and movement in Keystage 3 to much more advanced and in-depth physiological study. There are also immunology, cellular biochemistry and microbiology videos too. The videos are amazing, prepare to lose a few hours…..

Snap Science- free primary teaching resources

The Snap Science programme has been designed to cover the new primary science curriculum with enquiry, exploration, investigation and true progression at it’s core. Every lesson is already differentiated and the lessons aim to make challenging concepts meaningful for students.  At £100 a Year Group it’s affordable enough but to check out the kind of resources and ideas that are presented Collins Connect have made the Year 3 – Plants module available here Collins Connect – free primary teaching resources. Being a plant biologist, I like the way they are approaching the topic in a questions based way. What is this for? Are all roots the same? Why are petals different colours? This is in stark contrast to the labelling parts of a plant on a worksheet which I have seen way too often in the primary clas

sroom. There is also a lot of scope to develop child-led investigations out of the lessons and easy to put in different types of enquiry in experiments such as pattern seeking and classification.  See what you think!

Curious George – STEM Classroom Resources for EYFS and KS1

Active learning begins with curiosity! The Curious George STEM Collection is a great way to help young children understand science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, such as measuring, building, and simple machines. Lesson plans with Curious George videos offer hands-on investigations and exciting new learning opportunities that will inspire children to explore the world around them. As students ask questions, predict outcomes, share observations, and formulate theories, they establish the science skills and “habits of mind” that lead to academic success and lifelong learning.
