  • I usually love PlanIt, especially for Science. Unfortunately I don't love this unit. There are 8 scientist/ inventors for children to learn about-- and every one of them is a white man. Is there a reason no women or POC are included? I'll modify the planning to include others so my children don't get the idea that the only successful scientists and inventors are white men.

    • Hi karenbates,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) I'm really sorry that you are unhappy with this unit. I have passed it over to our lovely design teams to see if they can amend this pack for you. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else :)

    • Hello, thanks for your comment!
      We did try to get a balance of male and female (and not just white) scientists across all the Scientist and Inventors units, but we appreciate what you are saying about this particular unit. We found it tricky to find scientists that would be meaningful for the children. In the 'At the Vets' lesson there isn't a specific person mentioned - it just looks at vets as scientists. We tried to link the scientists and inventors to the curriculum units so that they would have a proper NC aim, and this has narrowed the people that we looked at.
      We will take another look and see if we can alter one or two of the lessons to include different scientists or inventors. If you have any particular scientists or inventors in mind you'd like us to include that would fit with the age group and curriculum please let us know :).

    • Thank you, and I completely appreciate everything you've said. I know that this must have been a consideration through planning and Twinkl is very inclusive.
