Following the popularity of the Science in the News-letters for KS4/5, I have decided to write a junior version. This will be a monthly event and include three news-stories with the normal links and questions, but designed for younger students (aged 8-12).

The stories and questions are linked to the KS2/3 curriculum content and the newsletter is supplied with a teacher guide which includes links to news storiesĀ for background information and model answers to the questions differentiated by key stage.

You can download the first one by clicking on the button. As always, I would love feedback from teachers on if you think this is a good idea and any improvements you would make. Please get in touch via Twitter (@snapshotscience), leave a comment on this post or use my contact form.
