Everything is theoretically impossible until it is done.' Robert A. Heinlein, aeronautical engineer and science fiction author. 


Across the school, we have participated in STEM activities on Friday 20th of October. The children have had the opportunity to use their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, to complete different challenges. 


Early years focused on different materials by making playdough, Oobleck, and slime! 


KS1 focused on the theme of distance by making different types of catapults using lolly sticks. They investigated which objects travelled the furthest using their catapults. 


KS2 had a variety of activities ranging from: creating the tallest tower using marshmallows and spaghetti; thinking about geometry, measure, and structure; making a pulley system to find out how much weight they can lift; making an electrical board that needed a light to work to answer a quiz; and designing and building a 60-cm-long bridge to investigate which one could carry the most weight. 


We have had a busy and creative day. Please have a look at the photos of what the children created below.
