Live lesson: Theatre of science

I'm a physics teacher streaming lessons on Facebook every Tuesday at 1.30pm. Wait in the videos section of Theatre of Science and I'll pop up. DON'T click dodgy spam links! Every lesson includes a story time and an activity kids can do alongside me. I usually say it's aimed at kids around 5 - 12 but we cover content that I wouldn't expect an adult to know so older kids may enjoy it too!.
