Still looking for a way to celebrate British Science Week 2024 across the whole-school? then we've got you covered with our Time for Science day! Not only does it fit perfectly with this year's theme of "Time," but it also has everything you need to deliver your own whole-school Creative Science Day!

Discovering the crucial role that time plays in scientific comprehension, Time for Science highlights the importance of time in a variety of scientific disciplines, each chosen to complement areas that each primary year group will investigate throughout this school year.

"Thank you so much for organising our 'Time for Science!' day. The children thoroughly enjoyed the activities and workshops. Chris was brilliant and so full of enthusiasm! I look forward to booking with AS Creatives again in the future."  St Andrew’s CofE Primary School

"I just wanted to say another huge thank you! The children really enjoyed themselves today. You are so engaging and make science and the theme come to life! We look forward to seeing you again next year!" Time for Science workshops, Allington Primary school

Last year over 43 thousand pupils from across the UK took part in our Science Week activites.

Starting with an introductory film about Time, each class will then go on to watch their year group film, led by the ever-curious Tallulah Time as she leads them through some of her favourite Science Timelines. Pupils will then complete their own Science Timelines linked to their class topic, as well as being introduced to some people whose Science Stories should be much better known than they are!

Accessing all the films and resources you need to make your day successful is simple once you've purchased the pack. And the best part? Time for Science is only £100, offering incredible value for money.

What do you get? 

  • Full instructions for teachers.
  • A filmed introduction to the notion of “time” – which can be shown at a whole-school assembly or to individual classes as a stand alone.
  • Timeline Teasers – quickfire challenges designed to whet your pupils’ creativity.
  • Full instructions for a warm-up activity, Timeline Sculptures.
  • Films (x1 per year group) bringing to life some Science Stories in which time itself has played a central role – with inbuilt opportunities for children to complete our Timelines (supplied as printable sheets): Films explore the following topcis;

EYFS/P1 (Understanding My Body): Human Timelines … What happens as we grow from a baby to a child to a grown up to an old person? Why should we celebrate these changes? Individual in Focus: Frederick Akbar Mohamed, a British doctor, among the first to recognise how individuals can extend their own life spans.

Year 1/P2 (Seasonal Changes): Seasonal Changes … How (and why) do the lengths of our days and nights change through the seasons? How does this help humanity? Individual in Focus: Eunice Newton Foote, a 19th century America scientist – amongst the first to foresee the effects of human activity on the global a climate.

Year 2/P3 (Animals, including Humans): The Lifespan Game … Why do different species of animals have such widely differing life spans? Can we relate this to life cycles? Individual in Focus: Kitty Wilkinson, a Liverpool laundress who played a big part in increasing the life expectancy of working class people in Victorian times.

Year 3/P4 (Rocks): Geology Timelines … What is the “fossil record”? How can an understanding of the differences between igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks help us look back on Earth’s immense history? Individual in Focus: Mary Anning, a British fossil collector whose discoveries changed our understanding of geological timelines.

Year 4/P5 (Electricity): Electricity Timelines … When did humans first start to work with electricity – and how did they do it? How has that led to the current and ongoing quest to create and manipulate electricity in sustainable ways? Individual in Focus: Granville T Woods, an American inventor, who harnessed static electricity to invent the first ever system allowing moving trains to communicate with stations.

Year 5 /P6 (Earth and Space): Space Exploration … How – and why – did humans first start exploring space? How did we move from the Space Race to the Apollo Years, from the Apollo Years to an era of International Collaboration – and are we now moving towards an Age of Business? Individual in Focus: Caroline Herschel, German-born, British astronomer who calculated comets paths – and discovered at least seven of the bodies!

Year 6/P7 (Evolution and Inheritance): Evolution … How can we use Darwin’s personal timeline as a metaphor for the evolutionary timeline that culminated in humankind. Individual in Focus: Ibn Miskawayh, a 9th/10th century Islamic scholar who developed an early evolutionary theory that bears striking resemblances to the great breakthroughs of the Victorian era!
