'Make Your World Bigger' this summer: Digital drive to keep children learning during school holidays
MYWB

Primary school pupils across the UK are being encouraged to continue their love of learning this summer, by taking part in an exciting new digital initiative.

The ‘Make Your World Bigger’ campaign is being launched by Discovery Education and Discovery Channel, giving children free access to attainment boosting resources during the school holidays.

Schools are being asked to sign up for the initiative, which will allow pupils to use Discovery Education Espresso’s digital learning service at home over the long summer break. The award winning multimedia content —  which includes clips from Discovery Channel, Discovery Science and Animal Planet — will help parents and carers to keep children’s learning alive, while igniting their curiosity about the wider world.

With over 19,000 cross curricular resources including interactive games, ebooks and short videos, Discovery Education Espresso has something to spark interest in every child. From exploring the limits of outer space to diving to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, there’s plenty to keep young learners engaged — and to inspire them to continue to discover and learn new things.

Pupils taking part can also enter a special competition, by sharing how they’ve made their own world bigger this summer. A trip to London’s Discovery HQ is on offer for the winning entrant and their classmates.

Susanna Dinnage, Managing Director of Discovery Networks UK & Ireland, said:

“'Make Your World Bigger’ is an invitation to everyone to get the most out of life. We passionately believe in exploring the world around us, whether that’s physically or mentally —  and what better time to experience more and find new knowledge and inspiration than over the summer holidays. We would love to hear how you have made your world bigger this summer.”

Lewis Bronze MBE, Founder and Director of Content at Discovery Education said:

“‘Make Your World Bigger’ will allow pupils to do just that. We want to encourage children to keep learning and achieving once they leave the classroom, and to inspire them to try something different during the holidays. We’re looking forward to hearing the summer stories of our Discovery Education learners as part of our competition.”

Primary schools wanting to be part of Make Your World Bigger are encouraged to download the pupil packs from discoveryeducation.co.uk/make-your-world-bigger before the end of the summer term. Pupils at participating schools will receive free home access to the Discovery Education Espresso service until 16th September, when the Make Your World Bigger competition closes. Full terms and conditions can be viewed on the Discovery Education UK website.

Those taking part are encouraged to Tweet about making their world bigger using #MYWBiggerChallenge.
