‘Science Skill Mascots’

Between now and the 17th of May, Mrs Taylor is running a competition to design a character to become one of our ‘Science Skill Mascots’. These mascots will need to represent our 5 key science skills:


  • Research
  • Observation over time
  • Comparative + fair testing
  • Identifying, grouping and sorting
  • Pattern seeking.


These mascots will be put on our website and also used within lessons throughout the whole school!


When designing your mascot, think carefully about how it will promote that particular science skill – you may even want to give your mascot a name.


To enter, complete your design on an A4 piece of paper and hand in your entry to your class teacher by the 17th of May. The winners will have their designed mascot used throughout our school and also receive a certificate to recognise their achievement.


Thank you for your generosity of all the wonderful book donations. We are now at the point that we unable to take anymore.



At TSC we are extremely lucky to have our inflatable dartboard, Speed cage, mini pitch and our large pitch.


This May half-term we will be taking our inflatables on a tour of our districts.


These will be at our Soccer School on Tuesday 28th May!
