The ASE are promoting this free resource to all primary teachers so we wanted to share it with you. This is what ASE say about this excellent set of lesson plans;

An article by Prof Jim Al-Khalili in the Guardian in April about the importance of scientific literacy prompted this resource for teachers to use to stimulate and support conversations in primary school classrooms to help children to make sense of the experience of living through a pandemic.
There are nine questions which cover different scientific aspects of the coronavirus pandemic. They will provide opportunities to build children’s knowledge and understanding of the science that explains the disease and its consequences, with questions to explore further and investigations to pursue. For each question the science is clearly explained for teachers to use, with links to relevant National Curriculum content, other teaching resources and lessons taken from the Snap Science Teaching Framework.”
