Welcome to the STEM pages! Please look through these pages to find some ideas for home learning. We would love to see any work that you produce so feel free to send any pictures into your teachers.
Remember, that STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) means you can ask questions, test your ideas, make mistakes and very importantly learn from these mistakes! It is a chance for you to ask questions and find the best way to answer the questions.
So be curious, be prepared to make mistakes and have fun!
We are very excited to announce the Ogden Trust physics competition for 2021. We would like to see your physics superheroes, so look at the slides below and then get your thinking caps on! Record your superhero either on a piece of A4 paper and hand it in to your class teacher.
If you work on the computer, you can email your entry into your teacher too.
There will be an Amazon voucher for the winner of EY/KS1 and a voucher for the winner of KS2.
The deadline for the competition is Friday 30th April, so don't delay and start today!
Good luck everyone.
Are you ready to innovate for the future? Share your fantastic posters and maybe win some amazing goodies for yourself and the school.
The theme is 'Innovating for the future' so think very carefully about the resources you use, how your innovation will be powered (if it needs power) and what job your invention will do.
Make sure it makes life better!
Check out the details on the website, and there are activity packs too to get you in the right frame of mind.
If you do send in a poster, please could you send a copy to us? You have until 30th April to get your posters in.
Thanks everyone and good luck!
A great coding resource. Children need access to a computer but can download what they need from the website for most of the activities. It starts with you having to create a program to move a boat through a maze, there is plenty of opportunity to problem solve!
A set of 22 science challenges and 22 engineering challenges using equipment readily available around the home. Challenges are for children ages 7 and up but there are ideas that can be used with younger children.
A blog written by Emily Hunt, a primary science teacher and STEM enthusiast. There is a link to her book but lots of free ideas on her blog. Well worth a look!
The Primary Science Teaching Trust has teamed up with Science Sparks and developed lots of great ideas that can be enjoyed at home.
A message of support from the NCETM designed to for parents and carers with continuing mathematics learning at home.
