Supporting the National Literacy and Numeracy Framework and the emerging Digital Competence Framework
All Foundation Phase programmes cover the seven areas of learning, providing a balance between presenter-directed learning and child-initiated activities. The programmes are presented with the help of Delyth, a cheeky and inquisitive young dragon, who is on hand to help answer questions and inspire pupils in science and mathematics.
Each programme consists of a Science Theatre show, time on the exhibition floor amongst the 120 hands-on exhibits, plus post-visit materials, thereby offering teachers a complete package of activities to support their teaching.
Each lively presentation in the Science Theatre lasts approximately 25 minutes, after which pupils explore the exhibition floor. Here they are guided by their own curiosity, and engage with a variety of interactive exhibits that encourage them to experiment.
Resource materials are downloaded onto a memory stick which teachers can take back to their classrooms to extend the learning experience.
