This year STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) Week took place on the 13th-17th March with particular focus on Science Experiments and Maths investigations across all year groups to boost the children’s interest in these areas. Each class had been asked to do one Maths and one Science investigation each day, and study the life and contributions of a mathematician and scientist. The children worked systematically to explore variations and possibilities, used their fine motor skills to investigate time, made playdough, circuits and exploding volcanoes, tested magnets and their strengths, investigated polygons, the perimeter of a rectangle and number patterns and sequences, played board games in the hall – a busy week was had by all. There was a celebration assembly on Friday the 17th to congratulate quiz winners and investigative ideas. The children’s tremendous effort and resilience was recognised with fantastic prizes. To celebrate the end of a busy week, the children took part a fabulous mathematician/ scientist/ inventor costume parade and winners were chosen from each year group. It was lovely to watch the children enjoy these practical activities, especially the glow on their face in the moments when they had discovered and learnt something new.
