Lockdown Science Survival

£9.95/Box delivered weekly for 6 weeks

We’ve put together a special lockdown offer:

  • 1 Nano Box per week for the next 6 weeks to get you through the Lockdown (Please note that Brexit and Covid have made supplies hard to get so contents may vary from what is stated here)
  • Plus access to a homeschool helpline where we’ll put your science homeschool questions to our Curiosity Champions! Just email questions to [email protected]

Each Box is curriculum-linked to help your child get ahead with their science and DT. The detailed outline of box topics and how they link with the curriculum is below.

We are parents too so we know the pain of the juggle that we all face, so we have put this programme together so it’s one less thing for you to think about, at a price that we hope will make it accessible to people.

£2 shipping per box for UK and International shipping will be calculated at checkout.

This is a limited time only offer to help us parents through the current lockdown. The table below shows the order of boxes, the topic and the areas of the primary curriculum that they explore. All our boxes are made to encourage children to think and work scientifically, to make predictions, conduct test and analyse results.

26th Feb
Seaside Science
UV Keyring

DIYnamic Sand

States of matter/ Properties and changes of materials

  • observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)
  • know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution

Light

  • recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect their eyes
5th March
Fire and Ice
Hot Ice

Little Lanterns

States of matter/ Properties and changes of materials

  • compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases
  • observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)
  • identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature.
  • know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution
12th March
Dinosaurs and Fossils
Dino CSI

Salt Dough Fossils

Plants, animals and habitats:

  • compare and group together different kinds of rocks on the basis of their appearance and simple physical properties
  • describe in simple terms how fossils are formed when things that have lived are trapped within rock

Living things and habitats/Evolution and inheritance:

  • recognise that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago
  • identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution.
  • describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro- organisms, plants and animals
  • recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways
  • recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.
  • explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment
  • construct and interpret a variety of food chains, identifying producers, predators and prey.

19th March
Science of Sound
Springy Waves

Band in a Box

Sound

  • identify how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating
  • recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear
  • find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it
  • find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it
  • recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases.

Engineering and design:

  • select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities
  • apply their understanding of how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce more complex structures
26th March
Space
Fizzy Comets

Marbled Planets

Earth and space

  • describe the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system
  • describe the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies

States of matter/ Properties and changes of materials

  • compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases
  • observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)
  • identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature.
  • know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution
2nd April
Fully Charged
Lemon Batteries

Eco-electric Racer

Engineering and design:

  • use research and develop design criteria to inform the design of innovative, functional, appealing products that are fit for purpose, aimed at particular individuals or groups
  • select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities
  • apply their understanding of how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce more complex structures

Forces and Magnets

  • compare how things move on different surfaces
  • recognise that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.

Electricity

  • identify common appliances that run on electricity
  • construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts

We’ve never used single use plastic packaging (and are working with suppliers to try and stop them doing it too!)

All our Boxes are invented and manufactured in Oxfordshire.

Postage of £2 will be added at checkout and to each renewal.

You can cancel at any time.
