Doctor Who, Space, Light, and Super Movers - Live Lesson

Discover how light travels and investigate Earth's place within the Solar System with Doctor Who

Calling all Super Movers! We need your pupils to get active and help the Doctor save Earth. We'll explore the planets and discover why light is important to life on Earth.

As we tackle this ginormous Doctor Who style challenge, space expert and medical doctor, Dr Kevin Fong, will guide our interstellar ship!

Designed for Key Stage 2 and 2nd Level students, this active science lesson presented by CBBC’s Naomi Wilkinson and Karim Zeroual will feature scientific demonstrations and accessible Super Movers Brain Boosters.

Before watching the Live Lesson, you can warm up with the Brain Boosters - Light and the Solar System - on the Super Movers website.

Tips and advice from our experts

After the Live Lesson, we will be recording a very special panel discussion programme for teachers. Teachers will be able to watch the full programme a few days after the Live Lesson has aired here on our website.
