Dyson Foundation - have some Challenge resources designed for inquisitive minds. They are designed for home learning with things you might already have in your house like plastic bottles, balloons and spaghetti

Between April 24th to 27th Nottingham will be taking part in the international competition, City Nature Challenge 2020. We will be competing with 266 cities from across the world to record as much wildlife as possible.

The Nottinghamshire Wildlife City Local Group and Nottingham Urban Wildlife Scheme, with Ignite! is leading the City Nature Challenge 2020 for Nottingham.

The challenge takes place in 2 parts:

April 24th to 27th - A chance to make records! We will be encouraging and supporting individuals to record wildlife from lichens to larks and from fungi to foxgloves.

April 28th to May 3rd - organising and verifying the wildlife sightings to ensure that they are included in our tally!

To take part, all you need to do is download the nature recording app iNaturalist (www.inaturalist.org or vie App/Play Store) and use it to take photos of any wildlife you spot over the weekend. Keep checking back and you'll see that other people will help verify what it is that you spotted!

Thinking Walk - Aimed at younger primary learners, this resource provides an opportunity to review the parts of a plant, look at the differences between different plants and to find words to describe them. The activity involves children planning a thinking walk, considering how they will respect the plants and other living things and the equipment they will need.

 

Learn by Design - STEM at home have a range of activities - word searches, worksheets, colouring sheets - all related to science, technology, engineering and maths - some need a printer, BUT THE BEST BY FAR.... Are the practical experiments you can complete at home with household objects! See static electricity in action with a comb and some salt and pepper! Make clouds in a jar with some hairspray and ice! And more! Some activities will need adult supervision

Rolls Royce - Spirit of Innovation have a range of activities (most need a printer, but some can be read on screen) for ages 3-11 linked to the EYFS and National Curriculums. All the activities are related to flight, electricity, recycling and sustainable energy and have been released to coincide with the building of a hopefully record-breaking new sero-emission, high-performance air-craft
