STEM Club (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is a club for Years 4, 5 and 6 run by Miss Busby and Miss Wood. It's held on a Tuesday night from 3.20 to 4.20pm.  Pupils meet Miss Wood and Miss Busby outside Miss Busby's classroom.

Polar Explorers - Group change

 

Congratulations to our first group of Polar Explorers for completing their STEM sessions - we enjoyed working alongside you and hope to see you all in STEM club next year.

 

Group 2 - we look forward to our first Polar Explorer session with you on Tuesday 20th February.

 

 

Polar Explorers

 

We are currently working on a project based upon the Arctic exploration linked to the RRS Sir David Attenborough - the UK's new polar research ship and submarine Boaty McBoatface.

 

We will be looking at a range of investigations and experiments covering a range of themes including:

  • engineering - the building, loading and launching of the ship
  • exploration - life as a polar explorer
  • arctic animals - living and surviving in a cold environment
  • climate change - observing the signs and predicting the future
  • oceans - investigating the oceans.

Play dough and circuits

 

We made play dough and then tried to incorporate it into an electrical circuit to see if it conducted electricity.
