A Sherlock Holmes book good to improve English GCSE Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

Every so often, I pick up an older book that I have lying around, which is exactly what I did with Sherlock Holmes.

Bodies mount with no apparent link other than the word for revenge in German painted in blood near the bodies. The police are at a loss. Dr John Watson is at a loss. Sherlock Holmes is not fooled, and using evidence that no-one else notices, he solves the murders.

With all the TV shows and films, it is easy to overlook the books but they are a compelling read with engaging plots. Yes, they are dated in many ways from the setting to some of the language, but this does not detract from the way the story builds holding the reader's attention. There is a good reason the books are classics. I suspect people will read them for many years to come.

The feeding of children living in poverty in the Nairobi slums at a Porridge and Rice school

Porridge and Rice

A hungry child can't focus in class.

A sick child will miss lessons.

Porridge and Rice combats poverty by supporting schools in the Nairobi slums to provide children with a sound education that they can use to improve their lives and their community.

Porridge and Rice takes a holistic approach to education providing meals, text books, clean water, classrooms, soap, sanitary pads and anything else that is needed.

Home Schooling is on the rise

DIY schooling on the rise as more parents opt for home education

No one knows exactly how many children are being taught at home, but new figures suggest numbers in England are growing. Why is this?

For Marta Drew and her family, it was a difficult decision, but the right one. Eight years ago, her seven-year-old son had been complaining about school. Christopher, a bright, curious little boy, started saying things like "I hate learning" and "learning is boring". So I started reading about home education.

The Gaia space telescope

Gaia clocks speedy cosmic expansion

Europe's Gaia space telescope has been used to clock the expansion rate of the Universe and - once again - it has produced some head-scratching.

The reason? The speed is faster than what one would expect from measurements of the cosmos shortly after the Big Bang. Some other telescopes have found this same problem, too.

But Gaia's contribution is particularly significant because the precision of its observations is unprecedented.

In pictures: Ladybirds, geckos and gorillas

Fifteen stunning images from the Royal Photographic Society's International Images for Science competition.

The winners have been announced in this year's Royal Photographic Society's International Images for Science competition. The contest was open to both amateur and professional photographers, who could submit entries in three age-specific categories: 17 and under, 18 to 25 and 26 and over. This shot of a ladybird covered in raindrops was entered by Mostafa Ghroz.

The famous number pi

A Brief History of PI, π

That the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is constant has been known to humanity since ancient times; yet, even today, despite 2000 years of thought, theories, calculations and proofs, π's precise value remains elusive.

By the 17th century B.C., the Babylonians had a relatively advanced knowledge of mathematics, that they memorialized into complicated tables that expressed squares, fractions, square and cube roots, reciprocal pairs and even algebraic, linear and quadratic equations.

A vinergaroon, one of many strange bugs

Tarantulas, Killer Caterpillars, and the Most Misunderstood Bugs

Shakara Maggitt hands me a vinegaroon, or whip scorpion, a sci-fi looking bug with big black claws used to hold their prey. "They're so cute!" she says, and I'm shocked to find myself agreeing with her.

Bonding with bugs is the point of the Insect Expo 2016, and the impetus for Weird Animal Question of the Week to ask: What is the world's most misunderstood insect? Spiders, mosquitoes, and bed bugs were also mentioned, but here are the good, the bad, and the bugly.

The Horsehead Nebula just off Orion's Belt

Astronomy's dark horse lit up by Hubble

One of the most iconic astronomy images is that of the Horsehead Nebula. Located just off the easternmost star along Orion's Belt, the Horsehead is remarkable for being a "dark" nebula rather than emitting or reflecting light on its own. This is due to its dust-rich nature and the background emission nebula, caused by bright, young stars that ionize the gaseous interstellar material.

But in 2013, the Hubble Space Telescope team released an infrared view of the Horsehead, presenting a wholly unfamiliar view of this familiar astronomical sight. What it revealed was a slew of nebulous materials, low-mass interior stars and star-forming regions deep inside the nebula itself.
