Online science course for home educated children

Our next course of online home ed science sessions starts on the 2nd November 2021 and is aimed at home educated children aged 5-11. Sessions run at 10.15am-11am weekly on Tuesdays. This course will be run via Zoom and you will need a computer to access the sessions. A webcam is desirable but not essential and your child does not have to be on camera. Just £7 per session and £3 for each additional sibling. This price includes a set of equipment sent to you to be used in each session (1 set per child). You will also be asked to provide a few things from around the home such as scissors, pens and cups of water.

These 45 minute home ed primary science sessions are run online by a highly trained scientist and provide children with an opportunity to socialise whilst learning. Sharing results is a key part of scientific research and these sessions will encourage collaboration and sharing ideas.

All sessions are recorded and some families chose to join in via the recordings only. We are available for email support during the week so you can still ask questions, even if you don’t attend the actual session.



This term we are working on the theme of ‘the human body’.

Session 1 – Cells – We are starting our sessions with the building blocks of life – cells! Children will be learning what a cell is, looking at Cress’s cheek cells and onion cells under a microscope, making a mobile of different cell types and modelling the basic parts of a cell.

Session 2 – Eyes – This session is full of experiments on eyes including seeing our pupils expand and contract, exploring depth perception (and why we have two eyes) and seeing how our brain can be tricked with illusions. Children will also learn how red/blue 3D illusions work and make some of their own.

Session 3 – Blood and the heart – Building on what we have already learned about cells, children will be learning exactly what is in blood and what it’s role is. We will also be making a one way valve and testing it to see how blood travels in one direction. This session will also include a dissection for children to watch and get involved in. Squeemish children will be able to turn the camera off for this part if they wish.

Session 4 – Muscles and tendons – We will be learning about the three types of muscle, creating a muscle model and also making a bionic hand to learn about tendons!


The price for a block of four sessions is £28 for the first child. Additional siblings are welcome to share a screen and work on the activities with their own set of equipment and there is an additional total cost of £12 per additional sibling for the additional kit. All sessions will be recorded so that you can access the session even if you are unavailable at the time of the session. We are also on hand for help and support between sessions too.

This club will be strictly limited to 15 screens so that every child gets the most out of the club.
