Over the past year Miss Bellis has been working with all the Staff and pupils in the school to develop science teaching and learning as part of the Primary Science Quality Mark. I am pleased to announce that as a school we have been now been awarded the Bronze award, the first step on the ladder to achieving Silver and then Gold in the future!
The award is based on a set of criteria and evidence collected, which reflects the continued development of Science learning taking place in and around school. We have worked closely with Hawarden High, Ms Dale (STEM ambassador), BBC Terrific Scientific and hosted Science days along with many other outside agencies which have contributed to the learning of all of our pupils at Northop Hall. Miss Bellis, Mrs Harrison and some Governors have observed Science learning taking place across the school and gathered pupil’s thoughts and ideas about their own science learning, all of which has been extremely beneficial to ensure the further development of children’s knowledge of: scientific enquiry, knowledge and understanding of the world around them and leading their own learning in science.
We look forward to our next Science day taking place on 15th March, where we will be exploring 'big questions' through child-centred investigations. We will enjoy continuing to work towards the next award and all of the hands on learning which will build towards achieving it.
