Bingley Grammar School

Inter-primary school science competition

At the beginning of June, Mr Brown set an inter-primary school Science competition and the Year 3 and Year 4 students have worked really hard on their entries.

In groups of two or three, the students had to think of two animals from contrasting habitats and blend them together to create a new animal. After naming their new creature the pupils then created a "small world" shoebox habitat for their new creatures. The preliminary rounds were held at the respective primary schools with the pupils giving short presentations to their peers. One Year 3 group and one Year 4 group were chosen to represent their primary schools at the final held at Bingley Grammar School on Friday 3rd July.

After a couple of last minute cancellations, the pupils from Trinity All Saints CofE and Saltaire Primary arrived with support from parents and grandparents.

All of the participants gave excellent, confident presentations. Each group helped to bring their creatures to life through their amazing "small worlds" and information packed presentations. They were a real credit to their primary schools.

The finalists were as follows: From Saltaire, Iqra Abass, Arlo Parkinson and Hector Nutting (Year 3) with the "Polar Monkey" and Lottie Hatch, Elizabeth Buckley and Sadie Cole (Year 4) with the "Wolfin". From Trinity All Saints CofE, Georgia Yanger and Georgina Edmonson (Year 3) with the "Leoman" and Akash Ahmed, Amber Bowdrey and Aaron Lister (Year 4) with the "Ladybee"

After a very close decision indeed the judges awarded first place to Georgia and Georgina, the Year 3 team from Trinity, with their entry, the Leoman.

A really big well done to the winners and to the rest of the participants, they all showed themselves to be the naturalists of the future. Sir David Attenborough had better watch out!
