Primary Connections is developing learning and teaching resources suitable for implementation under the current circumstances. In developing resources, as much as possible we aim to:

  • Give teachers flexibility and agency with resources to most appropriately deliver at-home learning for different contexts and student needs.
  • Equip teachers to support parents and carers to implement learning at home.
  • Link science with literacy, be guided by education research, incorporate collaborative learning principles, and include opportunities for investigating and embedded assessment.
  • Encourage curiosity, build an awareness of science in our everyday world, and develop scientific literacy.

New resources are added regularly. Subscribe to our mailing list to stay informed about the newest resources available.

Science will solve this, teachers will shine through this.
