Primary Science Quality Mark – Gold!
Last academic year was a fantastic year for Science at Nelson Mandela School! We were aiming to gain the Primary Science Quality Mark (Gold level) and consequently working hard on taking Science out of the classroom. Our first ever Science fair, which lots of you participated in and many more visited, was a resounding success and will now become an annual event. Some lucky children have also competed in the ‘Big Science Challenge’, an inter-school science event we have started with Clifton School and all of year 5 experienced a lab chemistry lesson in June at Hall Green Secondary School. We have just heard that we have been successful in gaining our Gold award (one of only a few Birmingham schools) and we are very proud of our children, teachers and families’ participation which were key to this achievement.
