Discover science and maths award

Our school has achieved the SFI Discover Science and Maths Award for the 2019/2020 academic year. We will receive the plaque of STEM shortly. Well done to all the students, staff and parents for their very hard work both in school and at home during the lockdown. The school provided evidence of children’s engagement with STEM in the following areas:

Science

Technology

Engineering

Maths

STEM Showcase

Here is some feedback on our Log of Evidence:

Well done – it was a pleasure to assess your submission for this Plaque award. Your LOG presented evidence clearly explained and illustrated of all the activities you list in the application. Your observations on the experiments show that the skills of Estimation, Prediction and Measuring are being developed. I was particularly impressed with your pupil led demonstrations on the relationship between nose and taste, the elephant toothpaste, climate change PP – all very interesting and designed by learners themselves. The work you did at home during the lockdown also shows great independence. You also managed a very worthwhile Showcase despite the closure. Congratulations on achieving your award – keep up the good work and maybe consider applying for the Badge of Excellence next year
