Children from Years 1  to 6 were all invited to take part in the Catch Me Being A Scientist 2020 Competition, organised by the Year 6 STEM Leaders, Ethan, Nico, and Rudi, with a little help from Mrs Clark.

There were a huge number and variety of entries including posters, PowerPoint presentations, models, and videos. The topics covered a wide range too. Some children looked at physics topics such as hearing and sounds, and friction. Other children have enjoyed finding out more about their favourite animals. Some enjoyed chemistry with explosions and chemical reactions using everyday household chemicals.

Watch some of the Catch me Being a Scientist entries:

In more good news for the Science department, we’ve also now been formally awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) in a virtual awards ceremony and presented with our certificate.

The Catch Me Being A Scientist 2020 Competition has provided another opportunity for the children to demonstrate their enthusiasm for Science.

The winners of the competition were chosen by the STEM Leaders. They had a really tough job deciding on the winners because the standard of entries was so high.

The winners are:

Years 1 and 2



Years 3 and 4


Years 5 and 6


Well Done to all of the children for their brilliant entries!
