    Hello Emma,
    I found your site as I was doing some research for new LEGO primary school models. I have written a book for Teachers and it would work for Homeschoolers too. I would like to find some ways to make the book available to parents and teachers. The book is on Amazon. Animate-Build-Code with LEGO and SCRATCH a guide for Busy Teachers. I can send a lesson plan for you review. It teaches how to use the free SCRATCH coding found online while learning how to do some basic graphic designing. I am on FB but I am not going to use my webpage, I am fazing that out.

    Hi Emma, I love your site and am a fan. I too am passionate about science education and doing this from a young age.
    THANK YOU!!!
    I have used some of your ideas from the free science sparks booklet with Early years teachers and also with settings. I did a training session with an Aice in Wonderland (or wonder lab) theme. We had feely Mad Hatter hats, a tea party enquiry and a visit to winter Wonderland with your ideas. They loved it.
    I have also promoted your site and ideas with Primary Science Subject leaders in East Riding of Yorkshire. Really creative fun ideas with a strong educational basis. Just fab!!!!

    (I am a school improvement officer for science (from early years up to sixth form). I also am a member of ASE and ASE futures and a PSQM hub Leader so we may bump into eachother in the future. I would love to hear from you) Do you do any talks or visits? Just wondered re you coming to a SL meeting (?)
