Twig offers high-quality films, purpose-made to cover international curricula, and learning materials to teach Science, Maths and Geography to students aged 11-16. Twig supports teachers in delivering key learning points to their students, motivating them to explore and discover, to think for themselves and understand the relevance of what they are being taught in the real world.  With a range of films for curriculum topics, real-world contexts, glossaries and experiments, teachers are equipped with content and materials to engage their students and develop their 21st Century skills.

Twig is tailor-made for teachers
The Twig website provides school-wide access to thousands of three-minute films for Science, Maths and Geography, as well as worksheets, lesson plans, quizzes and diagrams. Twig resources are easy to use. You slot them into your existing lesson plans or use them as inspiration for future lessons. With Twig, there’s no need to search the internet for safe, age-appropriate content that is going to engage your students – it’s all been done for you.

Twig is matched to your curriculum
Twig films are created specifically for use in schools and are matched to a range of curricula including the National Curriculum, CE 11+ (ISEB), CE 13+ (ISEB), GCSE, IB and IGCSE. Before we make any of our resources, we consult with teachers to ensure the right learning objectives are covered. Use the Curriculum view tool to find the right films and learning materials for your curriculum.

Twig lets your students explore the world
Twig’s award-winning resources use world-class film footage to engage and inspire students. Whether tracking tarantulas in the rainforest or chasing storms in Tornado Alley, Twig films are guaranteed to captivate your class and relate classroom learning to the real world.

Learn how we make our films.

Twig offers you flexibility and variety
Twig films can be used in a variety of different ways – as an introduction to a new topic, to illustrate the topic as you teach it, as reinforcement or for revision. You can ask pupils to log in to the Twig website at home and watch a film in advance of a class so that they arrive for a lesson ready to talk about what they have learnt.

Twig supports differentiated learning
Twig allows students to learn at their own pace. You can ask different pupils to notice different aspects of a film. Those who have found a topic hard can watch the film again (and always love doing so) while others can use Twig’s unique Mindmap and the topic extension questions to explore further and extend their knowledge.

The onscreen key words, closed captions and downloadable transcripts make Twig films accessible to students with additional support needs or those whose second language is English.

Twig encourages cross-curricular learning
Exploring the Twig Mindmap allows students to see how different topics relate to one another. The films use examples from real life to demonstrate how different topics, and even subjects, connect outside the classroom. These cross-curricular links can take students on a journey of discovery and fire them with curiosity to find out more.

Twig makes teaching with multimedia easy
You can log in to the Twig website anywhere, whether at school or at home, and find the right resources for your next lesson, searching by keyword, curriculum or topic.
