How to get the most out of one issue of Whizz Pop Bang science magazine

Mr Tyler, an awesome Year 2 teacher at Great Moor Community Infant School in Stockport, asked himself the question how can teachers help to get kids and parents more involved in science? He came up with an ingenious answer that’s really easy to implement!

Each month, when Whizz Pop Bang arrives in his classroom, Mr Tyler creates a new Whizz Pop Bang scrapbook.

The children take it in turns to bring both the scrapbook and the copy of Whizz Pop Bang magazine home for the weekend so they can have fun doing a STEM activity, reading the magazine or just doing the puzzles. The children love writing in the scrapbook and proudly sticking in their photos, experiment results and observations. It’s not compulsory, it’s not homework – it’s all about having fun with science at home – and kids, parents, teachers and even Ofsted are loving it!
