Broadheath Primary School awarded Silver Primary Science Quality Mark
After 12 months of hard work, Broadheath Primary School has achieved the Silver Primary Science Quality Mark, the aim of which is to improve engagement in science across the whole school. Subject leaders Mrs Rogers and Mrs Heys have been working hard over the last 12 months with both staff and children to develop science principles using high quality resources, asking high quality scientific questions so that children are actively involved in science with more work taking place outdoors.
Working alongside other schools, being led by Manchester University, children from Broadheath Primary have had many opportunities for scientific exploration within school, where we have had visits from the RSPB, scientists working with Year 6, chicks hatching in our Reception classes and a farm visited us on the school field! Many classes have been on science related trips to the university, museums and Delamere forest.
Children have thoroughly enjoyed their work:
“We loved finding the answer to our question!”
“Wow! I never knew evolution could be so interesting!”
