Science Learning At Home

There are many additional websites that have some brilliant science activities you may want to try with your child if they want some extra things to keep them busy. 

We hope your child is enjoying the science activities set for them weekly on Purplemash. 

There are many additional websites that have some brilliant science activities you may want to try with your child if they want some extra things to keep them busy.

The following weblinks have some useful Science resources you may want to try with your child at home.  Some offer quizzes or interactive activities.  You may need to register to access some of the webpages.  Please ensure you check the activities your child is accessing and monitor their interaction as sometimes the website may have live chats with scientists available and this would need to be supervised by a parent.

  1. The St Mary’s University Primary Science Team has been working with the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT) and Spectrum Drama on a project called Science at Work. This project has created opportunities to meet past and present scientists, and to learn more about people whose work involves using science.

    Science at Work consists of weekly activity sheets about scientists and people who work in a science-related job. Children are encouraged to send in their questions to the scientist who will answer as many questions as they can in a video released the following week on the PSTT’s Facebook page (and released on their YouTube channel).

    There are now 4 previous videos; Meet Florence Nightingale, Meet a medical doctor and an immunologist, Meet Gene Cernan and Meet Space Scientists. On Tuesday, the video featuring Isambard Kingdom Brunel will be released.

    All the Science at Work videos are available to download from the PSTT’s website. Please visit: https://pstt.org.uk/resources/curriculum-materials/Science-at-Work

    Every Tuesday an activity sheet will be released. Send in your child’s question and/or upload their drawing by 5pm on Thursday the same week. You can do this by completing the form on the Science at Work page on the PSTT website.
