STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

During the second half of the Spring Term, the whole school has been focused on STEM work, particularly science and design technology.  This work was presented in a ‘Showcase’ when parents and judges (from the local community) were invited into school to see the designs, models and discoveries.

 

 

Children presented their findings in different ways: drawings and plans on paper, electronic books, wall displays and physical models.  Most groups also had the opportunity to talk to the judges and explain what they done and the reasoning behind it.

 

The judges chose 3 winners in each age group (Reception, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2) and certificates and chocolate prizes were awarded in a special STEM assembly.  The first prize winners will have the opportunity to go to Worcester University next month to take part in more STEM activities.
