We've teamed up with the Wellcome Trust to bring our primary members a brand new series of workshops to explore the wealth of Explorify resources, which are designed to make #PriSci teaching easier - especially during lockdown and when returning to school.

Join us to find out more about the brilliant bank of FREE high-quality image, video and practical activity resources, which were developed by educational experts to ensure they are curriculum-linked and low-prep, to help develop your pupils' thinking skills easily.

Explorify has opened up primary childrens’ minds to what science really is and how we can explore it in our everyday lives. It has encouraged children to think outside the box and to make links to their everyday surroundings, helped communicate and discover new and innovative ways of thinking things through.  Teachers strongly agree from using Explorify that pupils enjoy science lessons  more and their confidence and science vocabulary improves, along with their knowledge and literacy skills.

This series of workshops will be presented by experienced Explorify Champions who will demonstrate the key components of the free resources and will support you to embed them effectively within your primary science provision. All of the workshops are divided by region, with limited spaces available per session, to ensure you can get the individual support you need from your Explorify Champion and to give you the opportunity to work collaboratively with other primary schools in your area.

Just click the button below to find out when the workshops for your region will be held.

Participants ideally should have previously tried at least one Explorify activity, preferably with other teachers from their school, though this is by no means essential. It would be helpful if schools have already identified in advance what support they may need with their science provision and to have given some thought to at least one thing they would like to achieve from the sessions.

Additionally, all participants will receive a 20% off discount code for the wealth of books and resources on the Millgate House Education website, to further enrich your primary science teaching - which you can browse here.

If you are a member school in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, fear not, as there is a range of support available especially for you to make the most of Explorify. Please contact SSERC in Scotland (www.sserc.org.uk), Anita Shaw (STEMPowered Learning –  www.stempoweredlearning.co.uk) in Wales and Gill Humes (Deliberate Learning – http://deliberatelearning. co.uk) in Northern Ireland.
