UNCRC 29 – education should develop each child’s talents.
Today in school we had a whole school STEM day as part of our involvement with Bring It On Net Zero North East. Each class took part in an activity.
Class 1 had sooo much fun thinking about ways that we could create a bridge for a train to cross; using different materials. The language and vocabulary that came from this was amazing and children were using words like “strong”, “sturdy” and “flexible!” Well done Class 1 you love a challenge and as always made it the best of fun 🙂
We had lots of fun taking part in the egg drop science experiment. We worked in pairs to wrap up an egg with different materials. The aim of the experiment was to protect our egg from cracking when it was dropped from a height. We had lots of fun!
Class 3 were given a challenging teambuilding task, to build a tower out of paper. They worked so hard as a team and made some amazing towers that stood up and held different objects. They had so much fun finding a way of building their tower and working out how to put it together.
Class 4 worked with Mrs Hill to design new technology for the school that could save energy! Well done to Dylan who impressed everyone with his engineering skills and designed something that all the teachers said they would buy, if it was created!
