FREE resources for British Science Week!

From the 9th to the 18th March, it is British Science Week – a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.

Free resources

To celebrate, Cornerstones are giving away six, spring-themed Love to Investigate projects for Y1 to Y6. Each investigation is easy to teach, needs minimal resources and includes an engaging method board for children to follow.

In addition, we have produced fantastic assembly packs that focus on six significant scientists. Choose from Marie Curie, Mary Anning, Professor Brian Cox, Sir David Attenborough, Fabiola Gianotti or Galileo Galilei. Go to free assemblies

Ask Dr Fran

Finally, do you or your class have a tricky science question that you want to ask? If so, tweet our resident scientist Dr Fran (@DrFranB) to put her to the test. We’d also love to see what you are doing to celebrate British Science Week so tweet your pictures to us @Cornerstonesedu.
