Three Minute Learning helps develop literacy skills and promotes real science.

"What I like most is the genuine connection between skills for reading and scientific concepts and language."
Sophie Davies, Twyford Primary School

3ml works like this:

First your learners read a very short story, chosen - by you or them - from over 1000 in our library. Then they complete four activities to help them understand and remember what they've read.

If you haven't used 3ml before, please take a look at the short videos on our Guidance page.

Sign up and try it out!

3ml is free to all SSERC members schools. It's also free to all home educators. If you are home educating and looking for help with literacy and STEM please contact us at
