Tigtag Junior, the science resource from Twig World for 4-6 year olds is now live. This is the latest instalment from Twig World Ltd that has come as part of the £430,000 procurement exercise led by Education Scotland in summer 2015. As with Twig and Tigtag, Tigtag Junior is now available to all state schools in Scotland (until July 2016) through the National Glow Launch Pad. To access this resource, look for the Tigtag Junior tile in the National ‘Scotland’ Launch Pad in Glow. Alternatively, you can also search for the tile in the Glow apps library and add it to ‘My Launch Pad’. The following video guide will help you do this.Practitioners can also sign up for Twig Newsdesk and Tigtag Topical Science updates. These are regularly updated and link current news articles with available Twig and Tigtag films. This supports the teaching of topical science which was identified as an aspect for development in the Sciences 3-18 Curriculum Impact Report.
Practitioners looking to boost their confidence in science may also be interested in Reach Out CPD. Reach Out is an online Twig World resource designed to help primary school teachers with the science curriculum. The site has been developed by a team of educational and production experts from Imperial College London and Tigtag. Teachers can enroll in many different courses focusing on science education in lower and upper primary settings as well as accessing skills-based CPD courses. Again, look for this tile on Glow.
Remember that learners can also access them at home too using their Glow logins.
