The IET Faraday website offers great, free STEM resources for primary and secondary schools. These include brilliant classrooom posters, careers packs, videos, activities and lesson plans.
We think primary school teachers won’t want to miss the fab free science posters.
Resources can be filtered by subject, age range, activity duration, Key Stage and even by exam board. There’s also information about Faraday Challenge days which is a real world engineering competition.
IET Faraday have also teamed up with the BBC who have created a series of exciting scientific investigations on their Terrific Scientific website, that are well worth investigating.
Last week we launched another new game, Chopper Squad which is designed to help children learning the concept of one more or less and ten more or less. It is a simpler version of our recently launched Helicopter Rescue which is proving very popular. Chopper Squad uses varying sized number grids up to a hundred square. It is also useful for those children who are beginning to extend their knowledge of the first numbers as the smallest grid focuses on the numbers 1 to 30.
This week we’ve added two new tablet friendly maths games:
Coconut Odd or Even and Coconut Multiples. They are similar games but they cover different mathematical concepts.
In Coconut Odd or Even children need to identify either odd or even numbers by hitting the relevant coconuts.
Coconut Multiples requires children to identify multiples in either individual times tables or mixed tables. Users can select whether to work with tables up to 10 or 12.
