Science at Brudenell Primary School

PSQM - Primary Science Quality Mark

In January, the science leader attended the PSQM Awards event at the STEM Centre in York to collect the school’s certificate and celebrate this great achievement. This year long undertaking enabled the leader to reflect on the school’s current provision, and then create a foundation for our future science teaching and learning. As a result, the profile of science has been elevated, there is a noticeable increase in positivity towards the subject from our pupils and our core principles have ensured the children of all years receive a carefully planned, investigative and broad science curriculum. I would like to thank the PTA for donating a substantial amount of money in order for the subject to be resourced to the required level. The award is held for three years, and already science learning at Brudenell continues to go from strength to strength.

Science Week 2020

In March 2020 Brudenell held its second science week in conjunction with the national event. The staff did a great job of providing the children with a week of fantastic science learning. Activities ranged from a visit from a dentist to polar exploration. Chestnut and Oak classes took part in ‘Practical Actions’ ‘The Tomato Challenge’ and ‘The Windmill Challenge’ respectively - enhancing STEM skills whilst considering global issues.

Science Garden 2020

2020 saw the completion of our new science garden. Thanks to funding applications from Headteacher, Mrs Harland, we acquired the expert help of landscapers, ‘Full Circle’, to complete the area. It now has: a pond with dipping platform; a grassed area for the children to enjoy; raised beds for vegetable growing; and tables for outdoor learning to take place. Mr Harland, the head of science, would also like to thank ‘Bulbs4kids’ (a Dutch organisation) for the delivery of 600 free bulbs to plant around school. A simple application back in October has enabled the school to add colour to the grounds whilst providing science learning and the introduction of additional insect and bird life to our urban area.
