‘Shaping Lives, Building Futures’

‘Shaping Lives, Building Futures’



The Garden is blooming.

We have learnt so much sowing our seeds and caring for the plants and now it is time to harvest our crops.


All the classes have been out in the garden planting seeds and caring for their crop.

Welcome to Science at Kidgate Primary Academy.

On this page we aim to show some of the exciting science events that have been happening in school.

Wild Flower Seeds

Some year 2 children have been busy scattering some wild flower seeds. We are hoping to make our environment more insect friendly. Roll on the summer to see what happens.

British Science Week Poster Competition


Thank you to everyone who has entered. School winners will be announced after the Easter Holidays. I will keep you all posted if any of our entries have been selected as finalists for the national competition.


Big thank you to Bulbs4Kids for the bulbs they sent to us in the Autumn. They really have brightened up our environment.


The Big Dig

Thank you to all volunteers that came into school to help move all the soil into the new raised beds. The raised beds are now ready for the children. What will they plant? The decision is theirs.

The Chicks have hatched!

Well done to Reception for caring for their eggs so well. The chicks hatched and were very popular, not just with the Reception children.

Exciting Science Week

What a fantastic week we had! Record breaking amount of visitors and so much science fun too. Thank you to all staff, children and visitors for making the week our best science week ever. Lots of rockets, slime, investigating and discovering.


RSPB Big School Bird Watch 2017

Year 2 have been out birdwatching. Thank you Mrs Jackson for coming along with us and giving us your expert knowledge.

All of the children went outside and completed a birdwatching session. The results are in and logged with the RSPB to help them to find out more about birds in our area and throughout the whole country.

See the link below (rspb) to see what our results were.

Thank you to all parents and carers who spent time with the children to birdwatch over the Big Garden Birdwatch weekend. It is fascinating to see the different birds that have been seen around our town.

Exciting Science Week at Kidgate Primary Academy 2016


At Kidgate we celebrated British Science Week a little late but we celebrated it with style.

Please check out the class pages to see some of the events that happened in school that week.


Each year British Science Week holds a poster competition. This year the theme was Spaces. Several children entered the competition. The entries were judged in school by Mrs Davison, Miss Andrews, Miss Thorne and Miss Shreeve. Winners of the Kidgate competition will be revealed soon. WATCH THIS SPACE!

10 of the posters could be sent off to enter the National competition. These were then judged and the short list added to the website and Facebook page of the British Science Week.

Well done to Oscar Lumb for being short listed.

Solar Eclipse 20th March 2015. The children were given the chance to experience the changes brought on by the partial solar eclipse. We used pin hole projectors to view the sun; safety first.

KEVIGs Science Club - Three students have been into school to work with our children. They have certainly enthused and inspired the children.
