AECC Science Competitions



While the school was closed for many children during the lockdown, Mrs Underwood (Head of Science) worked with Lisa Bates at AECC College and launched a school science competition across the trust.  The competitions had a Key Stage One, Key Stage Two and a  whole school category. The KS1 category looked at changes in our environment, whereas KS2 reviewed how to keep your body healthy and how athletes stay fit and well. The whole school strategy enabled children to research a career in the health sciences and see what that area of employment entails.


There were lots of entries across Coastal Partnership but we are very happy to announce that some children at Heatherlands won prizes. Anabel received a runners up prize in the KS1 competition and Romanie was also awarded a runners up prize for the health science competition.  These children both were given a certificate and Amazon voucher, by AECC College, to spend. Well done on the great work.


In KS1 we also had a competition winner. Rory received the winner’s prize for his work on how to eat a balanced diet and look after your muscles. You can see him holding his certificate and Amazon voucher proudly in this photo.




We would like to thank all the children who entered the competition for their hard work and resilience while completing their projects. Well done to the everyone who entered. We would also like to thank AECC Bournemouth for their generous prizes. Heatherlands are very excited to be working with you in school again next year, in Science Week March 2021!
