What fun we all had making snowmen for our very own snowman competition. We had snowmen of all shapes and sizes – even a snow dog and a snow rabbit too!

A huge thank you to our amazing site-supervisor Mr Allen, who got up in the early hours of the morning to clear the paths and enabled us to enjoy a memorable day at school.

 

We are delighted to announce that BBC Terrific Scientific have awarded us School of Excellence status for our outstanding work. The children are now embarking on the second year of the project which involves undertaking university led investigations and sending in data for them to add to their body of evidence. The investigations last year covered a wide range of scientific topics, from the carbon value of trees to the Mpemba effect.

At present the children are investigating the effect of exercise on the brain and will be taking part in future investigations into flexibility in feet and conservation of electricity.

This year I have had the privilege of being part of the ‘Building Educational Bridges’ project linking ten headteachers from England with ten headteachers from Singapore. The project was funded jointly by the D of E / British Council and involved working together for a week in London and a week in Singapore. The commission question was, “What are the key factors that influence success in the UK and Singapore’s teaching of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects at both primary and secondary level? What learning points and recommendations could be drawn from this that would benefit and impact on our English systems and context?” Irchester Community Primary School was chosen to be part of this project due to our excellent work in promoting high quality primary science education.
