    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone is using the new Exploring Science resources?

    Are they any good? How do they cope with assessment, now that we are all doing our own thing?!

    Is there anything else out there that's better?

    Any comments would be much appreciated :)

    My school used them forever and for the first 3 years I was there. The software was good, came with assessments and worksheets and quizes etc

    I then made a change. The assessments were misleading and often had typos in them. Some questions didn't make sense and never challenged the higher ability students. I also found that the units didn't flow correctly and we were combining two units at a time to get the content to connect better.

    We also wanted a better 2 year KS2 course.

    Like I said though, my school had been using them for a very very very long time, things may be updated and better now.

    I was gven a SOW from a sister school and we have begun editing that.
