School has the for­mula to claim award suc­cess

Rochdale Observer - - WHAT’S ON -

MILNROW Par­ish CE Pri­mary School has been awarded the Pri­mary Sci­ence Qual­ity Mark (PSQM).

The school has at­tained the Bronze Award and staff and pupils are now work­ing to­wards the Gilt Award.

Sci­ence co­or­di­na­tor Ian Wat­son led a group of lo­cal schools to raise the pro­file of sci­ence lo­cally and specif­i­cally within the school, with the aim to en­thuse chil­dren in the won­der of sci­ence.

The chil­dren have con­ducted and taken part in lots of ex­per­i­ments, such as a ‘rasp­berry tea’ one, in which they pre­dicted what they thought would hap­pen when rasp­berry tea leaves were added to still or sparkling wa­ter and hot or cold wa­ter.

The school also held a sci­ence day, with a show for par­ents and chil­dren in Milnrow Pri­mary, as well as Moor­house Pri­mary and Cross­gates Pri­mary. In Septem­ber, PSQMs have been awarded to 347 in­fant, ju­nior, pri­mary, mid­dle and spe­cial schools to cel­e­brate a com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence in sci­ence teach­ing and learn­ing.

So far, since its na­tional launch in 2010, more than 2,500 schools across the UK have achieved the award.
