CREST SuperStar Science Award
Miss Taylor is very proud to announce that Christ Church Hanham C of E Primary School have been awarded the CREST SuperStar Science Award. This is a nationally recognised award managed by the British Science Association.
During National Science Week 2018, all children in Key Stage 2 (years 3 to 6) took part in a range of activities all linked to the Polar Explorer Programme. These ranged from designing boats to exploring animals in Antarctica. In addition, a variety of visitors came in to the school to inspire and motivate children to engage in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). This was a great introduction for all children to experience problem solving in STEM subjects and learn through hands-on challenges which focused on exploring the world around them.
As a result of this award, all children in KS2 last year, have been presented with a SuperStar CREST Award certificate and an iron-on badge that can be attached to their school jumper on the sleeve. Overall, this award has increased children’s confidence in learning science and increased their awareness of the importance and relevance of science to society, and the role this plays in relation to helping people live with and adapt to climate change. Well done Christ Church!
