April Topical Science Update

Recently it’s being impossible to avoid the issue of plastic pollution – so this month is a Plastic Special, investigating the history of plastic – the wonder material!

Looking at the current issues surrounding plastic usage and the solutions that are being developed to tackle the huge environmental issues arising.

Finally there’s a shout out to the amazing Kids v Plastic and their UK wide Plastic Clever campaign – something we can all get involved in.

Science on the Web

I'm looking for some advice & feedback please.
I am working on a project called 'Science on the Web' which will hopefully help teachers find the best science websites for each area of the curriculum quickly and easily.

I had been working on the project for 3 or 4 months when I lost a large amount of data from my external hard drive. All I recovered was the pdf version of the project. So, I am in the process of rebuilding the document from scratch and it seemed the ideal time to share the DRAFT document and get some feedback on whether teachers think it will be useful.
The pdf document can be downloaded from dropbox here and I would be very grateful for any 'honest' feedback.
The document is in a very draft form and most curricular areas don't have any weblinks yet (I lost about 2 months worth of work). The following curricular Lines of Development are quite well linked:
1. Living Things
2. Food Chains
6. Space
11. Sound
18. Chemical Changes
Please do be honest with any feedback as I'm in the position now of pretty much starting from scratch - so changes are easier too make.
The uploaded document only maps the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence at the moment. I am working on mapping the National Curriculum at the moment and eventually the document will include both.
Thanks in advance for your time.
