Roald Dahl Day ( 13th September ) is fast approaching and we’ve got some brilliant ideas to help you mark the occasion.
First up are two very simple science activities produced in collaboration with the Primary Science Teaching Trust. Children can compare their height with the BFG and discover how The Enormous Crocodile disguises himself.
This resource is the first in series 2 of Science Fun at Home ( created with PSTT ). Series 1 was a weekly resource created to help schools and parents with science at home during lockdown earlier this year. Series 2 is full of the same brilliant science activities, but will be produced for special occasions throughout the year instead of each week. Don’t forget to follow the Primary Science Teaching Trust and Science Sparks on social media so you don’t miss anything exciting!
