Tackley Church of England Primary School



At Tackley Primary School we aim to stimulate the children’s scientific enquiry as they learn about Living Things, Materials and Physical Processes as set out in the National Curriculum.
Through practical experience the children’s scientific knowledge, skills and understanding will be developed. They will be encouraged to develop independent thinking skills, including generating questions that will lead to an investigation. They will make links between topics and discuss science based issues.
Using a cross-curricular and skills based approach, the children will experience a theme from each area of the science curriculum over a school year.

Marvellous Maze Science Day 2017:

On Friday we were delighted to share in a whole school science day! The challenge was set for the children to design a ‘Marvellous Marble Maze’ which aimed to ensure that a marble would take the longest time to complete the maze from start to finish!

We were overwhelmed by the number of parents who helped support in Medcroft class, the enthusiasm displayed by all the children, the resources and ideas that were collected from home and most notably the number of parents who visited in the afternoon to see our completed mazes! So thank you to everyone for getting involved!

Bright Spark Science Club:


This year we have run, via the help of ‘Bright Sparks’ Science, an after-school science club for the school. A scientist from ‘Bright Sparks’ came into school and delivered, for all classes, a fun and interactive assembly to inspire and ignite a passion for the subject across the school. Following on from this, 18 children attended an after-school club; completing a different science based activity each week, for six weeks! It was great fun!
