Since winning my Primary Science Teaching Award, my school has worked towards another Primary Science Quality Mark, which we achieved last year. I have been selected as a ‘Science Influencer’ for ‘Science across the City’ which has recognised, understood and celebrated primary science across the majority of schools in Stoke-on-Trent and supports other schools and teachers. I currently lead the Science meetings for our Multi-Academy Trust and am working with STEM on a project to collaboratively strengthen and develop Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 transition alongside a lot of very
knowledgeable and amazing teachers. My favourite part of 2020 was where we held a ‘Star gazing Night to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landings ’ which involved the use of the ‘Star Dome Planetarium, a fascinating talk by Dr. Binks from Keele University and being able to look at the moon through a 13” Dobsoniam telescope with the Astrophysics department alongside workshops that were supported by our Science Ambassadors in school. It was amazing.
