The Webb Telescope in Fusion 360

These guides contain instructions on how to build a 3D CAD model of the Webb Space Telescope using Fusion 360. The Webb Space Telescope is a space telescope that will be...

Surviving Space Temperatures

When the James Webb Space Telescope is deployed it will have one side which continually faces the Sun and is warmed by the Sun, and one side which does not face the sun. The cold side of JWST houses scientific instruments which work better if they are at a low temperature, so a sunshield is used to keep the...

Grid Multiplication as an Interim Step

This clip is the third of a suite of videos which look at progression in multiplication at primary level. It follows Richard, in Lower Key Stage Two as he shows how to move children on from using an array to using the grid method for multiplication. Working with a small group of children he demonstrates how to...

This resource, aimed at primary level, contains mathematical activity ideas linked to the science rainbow spinner demonstration. Activities in this resource investigate: radius, diameter and circumference of a circle, angles and puzzles. This resource has been...

James Webb Space Telescope: Vibration Design Testing

Aimed at upper primary learners this resource provides a design and technology activity based on the challenges engineers and space scientists faced whilst working on the creation of the telescope. Children...

James Webb Space Telescope: Keeping Things Cold

In this activity children learn about how the James Webb Space Telescope is designed to keep itself cold. They find out about the sunshield and how it works then explore how they can keep cold things cold, when...

James Webb Space Telescope: Investigating How Freezing Affects Materials

In this resource children investigate how the properties of different materials change when they are frozen. The two activities are based on a challenge scientists and engineers had when designing the James...

James Webb Space Telescope: Designing the Primary Mirror

This activity looks at the primary mirror of the James Webb Space Telescope exploring the challenges that faced scientists and engineers whilst they were designing it. Linking to tessellating shapes in...

Handling Data: African Animal Maths (Age 7-11)

This resource from ARKive, aimed at Key Stage Two, focuses on handling data, using some of the species that inhabit the African savannah as a context. It involves completing a table on the height and weight of animals and converting heights from metres into centimetres. In a second activity children are asked to...
