Resources and extra help for Parents
To help Parents, RMG has created a free course on FutureLearn.
The specially created course is designed for anyone interested in knowing more about primary science. It talks you through RMG’s approach to communicating complicated subjects, answering challenging questions and points you in the right direction for trustworthy sources.
The free course is designed to run for three weeks which will allow for reflection and lesson preparation, however, you can do it much quicker if you need to and all the content is available at once so you can work at your own pace.
