STEM

Along with several other schools in the Axholme area, we have recieved a grant from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Machanical Engineers (IMechE). We will be using this grant to fund projects for our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) after school club for the children of years 5 and 6.

The Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS) provides support for UK-based educational projects that increase engineering knowledge in young people.

Science Show.

We welcomed Dr Nate into school, he delivered a KS1 and KS2 show.

We found out that brussels sprouts contain a synthetic chemical called phenylthiocarbamide (PTC).

Only 70% of us can taste it, 30% of people can't - those are the people that love brussel sprouts!

Years 5 and 6 thoroughly enjoyed their STEM workshop this week with the Labrascals. We learnt all about polymers and made our own slime and jelly worms.

What is STEM?

STEM is the teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in a linked and practical approach.

We celebrate the multi teaching approach with full school activities. Children are linked with a buddy and are encouraged to answer open ended "wonder" questions.

We consolidated two weeks of learning about World War Two with a STEM activity afternoon.

"I wonder which material would make the best black out curtain"

"I wonder if the wing span of a plane alters the distance it can fly"

"I wonder how we could send a messgae from the Beaches of Dunkirk"

"I wonder how bombers flew in the dark"
