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...

What's in Your Bowl?

This Cre8ate maths activity motivates the use of averages, ranges, percentages, bar charts, pie charts, and tables to make comparisons, interpretations and conclusions. The students can perform the "What is in your bowl?" activities to investigate serving amounts and what is eaten for breakfast. The data collection...

Weather

Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials allow primary children to look at and measure the weather.

The first set of activities, What's the Weather?, are aimed at younger primary children and encourage them to think about the weather. Children observe...

Sea the Heat

This resource, aimed at Key Stage Two, investigates heat transfer as one of the principles of heat pumps used to heat lifeboat stations. Linking to the topics of materials and their properties and changes of state, children learn how heat moves from high energy (warm) to lower energy (cold) down a gradient and how...

Calculation Games for Students Aged 5-7

These games, published by BEAM for teachers of primary mathematics, can be used to practise and consolidate students' early mathematical understanding. The games, with their mathematical content, are: *Three in a line - addition up to 12 *Add or subtract - addition and subtraction to 12 *Add and count - number...
