‘Roots to grow; wings to fly’

Science

At Tattenhall Park Primary we recognise the importance of Science within the primary curriculum.  We are very proud to have earned our Primary Science Quality Mark in 2020.  The children and staff have put in lots of effort to have been awarded this and so we are so pleased that this has been recognised.

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.

 

School Trips and Visits

We are so pleased to been able to open up school again to visitors.  We have had some very exciting visiors of late supporting STEM within school... have a look and see!

On Wednesday 18th May we were all treated to a visit from the RAF!  A helicopter from RAF Shawbury landed in our school field, which was a complete surprise for our children!  The pilots Simon Collins, Tamsyn Ryall and egineer Jan Marcinkowski talked to us in assembly about their paths to becoming pilots/ engineers.  The children then carried out some STEM acitivies and later were able to ask the members of the RAF team some questions.  We were finally treated with a sit inside the helicopter.  What a fantastic day we had!

Bishop Heber Science Fair

On 14th March, children from Years 3-6 attended the annual Bishop Heber Science Fair.  The children were tasked with creating a project around the theme ‘growth’- this is deliberately left open to allow for the children’s imaginations to flow and boy did they!  We had projects on plaque, toenails, plants, horse hooves, mould, lungs and stars– what a diverse look at the theme ‘growth’!  We were blown away with the projects and experiments that they created and carried out and it was clear that the judges (who were Doctors, Professors and Scientists themselves) of the fair also thought the same!  We are extremely pleased to say that Alice won 1st place for the year 6 category, Charlotte, Harriet and Florence won 1st and Henry won 3rd place for the year 4 category and finally Thea and Chloe won 2nd place for the year 3 category.  A huge well done also to Lucie, Holly, Mollie, Betty, Lydia and Elizabeth in year 5 and Isabelle, Bonnie and Amelia in year 3– you all did such a wonderful job.  Well done Tattenhall Park– you have done the school proud, as always!
