To celebrate national science week classes 2, 3, 4 and 5 worked together on a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) challenge.
The first part of the morning consisted of the children working in their school houses to decipher Mathematical challenges. The children had to use their logic and reasoning skills to work out the answers to the questions.
In the second part of the morning the children again worked in the houses. The children were set a challenge to create a paper aeroplane that could travel the greatest distance. The children had to discover what variables would make the best paper aeroplane. They did this through trial and error ensuring that they kept some key aspects of the experiment the same to maintain a fair test.
The children and staff had a fantastic morning learning in both a classroom and outdoor setting and cannot wait to do another STEM challenge.
