This is a booklet that students can complete at home about the science behind the corona virus (covid 19). Each page contains keywords, diagrams, explanations, questions and extension activities and now project activities such as research and making posters/leaflets. It explains the different types of microorganisms that cause disease and the effects on the body. It explains how our body fights disease caused by viruses (and bacteria) and how a drug/vaccine may be developed.
The document below comes as a pdf for the students to download.
Task: Choose a non-communicable disease of you choice and research the symptoms and treatments of that disease. Be prepared to share you findings with your class our first lesson back with a quick 2-3 minute presentation of your disease.
The NHS website is a fabulous place to start, and it would be great if you could read through the content with your child and encourage them to pick out the key points.
Some diseases to choose from are:
- Heart disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
This is an optional activity but you will really benefit doing some science work during the school closure.
We have chosen Tassomai to help children be more independent learners at home, help them build knowledge learned at school and to help them achieve their best possible results in Science.
Tassomai makes it easier to learn and revise, at home, at school or on the move. Students just need to log in and start answering quizzes; the algorithm prioritises the right topics and ensures everything gets the attention it needs.
Our aim is for all students to complete their daily goal by hitting their target of correct questions.
Teachers will be able to monitor their progress and inform parents of their progress.
Science will have termly prizes for students who have made the greatest progress.
