Eileen Jones offers some practical activity ideas for TAs who work with less and more able children. This month’s focus is Science – Keeping healthy

on the pulse

Science should be stimulating and exciting for everyone. It sparks curiosity, prompts questions and presents challenges.

In this way, complex concepts become easier to grasp.

Learning objectives: to recognise that pulse rate is a measure of how fast the heart is beating; to measure pulse rate.
