Paper Rulers

I can NEVER find a ruler or a tape measure when I need one! (Of course, they are all over the place when I don’t!). But finally – a solution! Printable paper rulers. This site has got lots of them – one foot rulers, metersticks, yardsticks. Worth remembering next time you are desperate to measure something!

Animation and Filmaking

We have been stuck in this week (new puppy!) so the children have been making an animation. We made one some time ago by drawing a background picture (the sea) and taking still pictures of the drawn and cut out characters (fish) which we moved a fraction each time. When we strung the pictures together […]

Heart Exhibition

This site can take a little while to load (and has a strange navigation method), but the Wellcome Collection’s Heart Exhibition is a fascinating look at the human heart – from scientific details to how it has been presented in art. An interesting tour for older children.
