Science in School

At Tattenhall Park Primary we recognise the importance of Science within the primary curriculum.  We are currently working towards our Primary Science Quality Award to ensure that we are working together to raise the profile of science within our school.

Our Vision

All children will be encouraged to be inquisitive learners.  They will explore through practical, hands-on learning.  They will think about how their learning has an impact on the wider world around them.

We will aim to meet our vision through our Core Principles of Science which are displayed throughout school.

What's Going on in School?

We are working hard in our science lessons every day.  Have a look at some of the fantastic work we have been doing.

School Trips and Visits

Take a little look at some of the exciting trips that we have been fortunate enough to go on.  We have also had some captivating visitors come to school.

We are excited to be planning some wonderful events for STEM week (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) after such a successful STEM week last year.  Activities include an exciting assembly to start the week off, researching scientists, KS2 STEMterprise, EYFS & KS1 STEM based exploration sessions run by Year 4, whole school competition, an independent competition and a chance to share findings with the rest of the school.  We can't wait for such an exciting week.  Keep your eyes peeled for photos of our wonderful week.


Bishop Heber Science Fair

Monday 9th March 2020

Parents must be in attendance

After a great first pilot year, Bishop Heber High School will be opening their doors again to Key Stage 2 for their Science Fair.  With such roaring success from participants from Tattenhall Primary last year, (First Place for some of our Year 6 participants!) we are putting forward entries for this year.  The application process is now closed and we have an overwhelming amount of children excited to take part in this year's fair.  We are looking forward to sharing the results with you from this year's event.


Great Websites to Visit

If you carry out an experiment at school, why not take a picture and send them into school?  We'd love to see what you have been upto!
