Welcome to our summer edition of Phiz e-news. With the 50th anniversary of the moon landing approaching, we have been busy gathering ideas about how this theme might be developed in the primary classroom to help students commemorate Apollo 50 and to learn about the amazing stories of human exploration.
We also include a host of stories from across our network, lots of Phiz eFlags highlighting Moon landing anniversary events around the UK, and details of our forthcoming primary CPD events in London and Keele.

Phiz e-news is brought to you by our primary experts, bringing together the latest primary news, ideas and opportunities in the physical sciences. It is specifically compiled for primary practitioners though secondary teachers and HE colleagues may also be interested in some of the articles.
Over the year, we will feature ideas for EYFS, KS1 and KS2; interviews with scientists, teachers, researchers and people who are using physics in their careers. We will bring you regular news about events and activities from across our network of Phiz Labs – dedicated science spaces in primary schools – and primary partnerships. We will also share developments and opportunities from our growing primary CPD programme, including our Primary Physics Professional Learning (P3L) days.
“We work with a growing network of expert practitioners in primary science, and have partnerships and Phiz Labs across the UK,” says Programme Manager, Kirstin Greygoose. “We hope that by sharing news, ideas, resources and expertise through Phiz e-news we can support even more primary teachers to confidently deliver practical, engaging science.”
