With schools closed due to Coronavirus restrictions, we understand this is a difficult time for children and families. That is why we are inviting you to Learn with Us!
We have created a number of fun activities to help keep the little ones entertained, and our Research Team has come up with some enjoyable science-themed resources to help make home learning a little easier. All you have to do to access these documents is click the links below which will open up a pdf that you can print.
We are made up of trillions of cells, but do you know what each of our cells are made up of? Match the names of the different parts of the cell with their descriptions, and colour in the cell diagram. Bonus activity: Creative Cells! Using the diagram as a template, make your own cell out of play-dough, Lego, or anything you can find around your house such as cereal boxes and bottle tops. We’d love to see pictures of your cell creations by uploading them to social media and tagging us!

Here Comes the Sun
We love the sun, perhaps because we don’t see enough of it. But how many of us know how to stay sun safe? Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and every time you get sunburn you triple your risk of developing skin cancer. Help keep your neighbours safe in the sun when they go out for a walk or to exercise by making a window display using our fun and creative Here Comes the Sun activities and share top tips for staying safe in the sun! We’d love to see your window displays too so don’t forget to upload a picture to social media and tag us @TCCResearchTeam
History of Cancer
Did you know dinosaurs had cancer? What do Egyptian hieroglyphs have to do with cancer? Complete our History of Cancer Activity Sheet to find out more interesting facts about cancer and research.
T Cell Maze
We have trillions of cells in our bodies, some of which help protect us from germs and other things that can harm us. Some cells that protect us are called T cells. Complete our maze by getting the T cell through the maze to the changed cell at the end, missing all of the healthy cells along the way.
The Human Body
We fund research into all different types of cancer, with the common goal to improve the lives of people affected by cancer and prevent cancer from occurring in the first place. Label the different body parts on our body map and colour it in.
How small is a nano
One of our funded PhD projects is on using nanotechnology to help treat cancer. Nanoparticles are very, very small. Find out how small nano really is with our How Small is Nano colouring activity.
House of Peas
We have trillions of cells in our bodies. If you imagine you filled your house with peas, that would be the same as the number of cells just in your little toe! Complete our House of Peas activity and draw your own house full of peas.
Science Scavenger Hunt
Complete our Science Scavenger Hunt and find items around your home that are similar to equipment scientists use in the lab! You may want to ask someone in your house to help you with this activity. This scavenger hunt is just for fun and the items you find cannot be used as protective equipment in a lab.
Un-jumble the words and fill in the passage about Tenovus Cancer Care research.
Mix the colours together in the flasks using paint or pencils to make the correct ‘chemicals’.

How you can support us
We have been dedicated to supporting cancer patients in Wales for over 75 years and the Coronavirus has made our support services for cancer patients and their loved ones more important than ever. The effects of the Coronavirus pandemic has impacted our fundraising like never before. We’ve closed our shops, postponed our events and cancelled all our bucket collections.
But you can still help!
See below three different ways that you’re able to support us without leaving your home, and help us continue to be there for cancer patients and their loved ones.
