I am excited to tell you that our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) week will be taking place on the week of 11th March this year, where we will be celebrating STEM with schools around the country. We have planned lots of opportunities for the children to become scientists. There will be investigations, assemblies and lessons that have a science link to them. In addition, we will host our very own Science Fair and winners from this will join a Collaboration Science Fair involving all of the TILT Trust Schools.  


Our Science Fair, will be held on Thursday 14th March and winners from school will be selected. There will be a winner from all classes, Acorn, Birch, Cedar, Hawthorn, Juniper and Oak. There will be 4 winners who will then attend Minster Primary School on Friday 15th March. 


For the Science Fair we are inviting each child to participate by creating a scientific project at home that will need to be brought into school ready for Thursday 14th March. The project itself can be simple but it must include scientific explanations including diagrams, pictures, written explanations and/or photos.  


Ideas have been shared with children in assembly and there will be a club every lunch time for children who need help with ideas or writing up. There are websites detailed in this letter to support parents and children to create a project. There is a lot of information online – if you google search ‘science projects for children’. You can also visit our STEM page HERE.


We want the children to enjoy investigating the world around them and believe this is a great way to develop their scientific curiosity and understanding.   


Parents are invited to Sunny Bank’s Science Fair on Thursday 14th March at 2:00pm as part of our termly parent open afternoon.  This will be held in the main hall. We had such a fantastic number and range of projects entered last year and would like even more this year.  



Thank you in advance as always for your continued support as partners in our children’s education. 

Kind regards,  


Mr Allen and Mrs Willing (Science Lead)
