Science Big Questions



Ebooks are currently free to download at worldbook

Sir Linkalot

Please can we ask that the children focus on the Spaghetti Shakespeare and Bicycle Bernard Shaw lists.   Please also take this opportunity to review the earlier lists as well as the grammar support which can be found at the bottom of the home screen.

BBC Learning

This site is old and no longer updated and yet there's so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.
Oxford Owl for Home

Lots of free resources for Primary age


Developing fluency

TT Rockstars and Numbots

Your child should have login details for these websites/apps.

TT Rockstars



Developing arithmetic


This starter generator is wonderful for creating selected arithmetic questions. It also provides the answers. The levels can be adapted to suit the needs of the learner. The topic can be easily varied.

This website also has many other wonderful question generators.

Developing problem solving

Corbett Maths Primary

This is a great resource as it limits the number of questions but also is differentiated across four levels of maths. Your child should choose the level most suited to their capabilities.

Optional enrichment opportunities (including games, investigations, puzzles and problems)

Nrich (University of Cambridge)

This is a rich resource full of great games and creative activities.  Be aware that the level of challenge is scaled from one to three stars, as well as each activity having age guidance.


These are additional problem solving challenges, some of which are really engaging as they link maths and art.

Education City is an online resource which the children are also able to use—there are a number of different activities to support all areas of the curriculum.  Problem solving, such as Sudoku puzzles, are also great, as are games such as Countdown.  

Fun Algebra 

This is a fun site where children can try to solve simple algebraic problems which use emojis.


Knowledge organisers for science can be found at the following link (scroll down to the bottom of the page):

These will be updated with each term’s topic. Here are some suggested ways that they can be used at home:


  • Give the definitions without the spellings – children have to find which spelling matches the definition.

  • Provide some simple questions that can be answered using the information on the organiser.

  • Ask children to write their own quiz questions using the organiser – then try and answer them the following day!

  • Read, cover, write, check of key facts.

  • 'Just a Minute': based on the popular Radio 4 show, ask children to try to list facts from their knowledge organiser for 1 minute straight, without repetition, hesitation or deviation.

  • Flashcards: get children to make a set of flashcards that include all of knowledge items for one section. They can then use them in spare moments for self-quizzing.

  • Give your child a 'blanked out' knowledge organiser to fill in with as much detail as they can recall.

The following links are also useful when supporting the learning of science at home:

Wow Science - activities organised under the different science topics
BBC Bitesize - videos and activities for primary science

Crest Awards  - Science awards you can complete from home.

PE and Keeping Active

Here are some ways that you can keep active at home.


  • National Trust have opened their open spaces, including gardens and parks, for free over the coming months to allow families to get some fresh air.

  • Joe Wick’s ‘Five Minute Move’ videos are free to watch on YouTube
    Change4Life has free ten minute ‘shake up’ games

  • Daily exercise videos are available here

Connected Curriculum


Summer term topic: Chocolate


Mayan Civilisation


Study of South America


Children could explore the use of chocolate in both sweet and savoury recipes.  How can it be used as a flavouring?
