BBC Studios unveils new educational Doctor Who resources

Global educational publisher Twinkl partners with BBC Studios to create a ‘Dalek-table’ range of resources.

BBC Studios has teamed up with global educational publisher, Twinkl to create a range of educational Doctor Who resources for children aged 7-11.

Launching today (June 10), these are the first ever Doctor Who educational resources to be linked to the UK national curriculum.

The resources include activity sheets, interactive presentations and reading comprehensions based around several episodes from series 11 and 12 of Doctor Who. The resources can be used separately or alongside episodes and link the Doctor’s adventures to units of study for school years three to six.

Covering core subjects including science, geography and history, the materials introduce children to figures such as Rosa Parks, Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, and teach them about subjects such as the Indian partition, artificial intelligence and animals and their ecosystems.

Children are also encouraged to explore the different uses of electricity and the many forms it takes, as well as how to remain safe when using electrical equipment around the home.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Twinkl to create Doctor Who educational resources for children across the world,” said Vanessa Hamilton, head of brand, Doctor Who at BBC Studios. “Doctor Who has been inspiring and entertaining children for generations, so we’re thrilled that we can bring this much loved series to the classroom in an educational and engaging way.”

Jonathan Seaton, ceo and co-Founder of Twinkl, added: “Working with BBC Studios to create this exciting range of Doctor Who learning materials has been out of this world. We are always looking for new ways to help those who teach, and hope that these resources provide teachers, parents and carers with a unique new way to engage children in learning.

“We know that now more than ever parents are looking for ways to help children learn at home and hope that the Doctor Who resources will be a big hit in households and at schools right now, as well as far into the future.”
