STEM curriculum evening

Thank you to all the parents who attended our recent STEM curriculum evening and to the whole staff team for showcasing our learning and making this evening a huge success. Our parents loved trying out some of the experiences on offer and feedback was very positive and encouraging.

Great to see all the stimulating and fun activities and nice to talk with staff and parents.

So lovely to see the amazing resources and have a chance to meet other staff members – really lovely group.

Thank you for all the staff’s knowledge and expertise!

The resources were fantastic, in particular the technology.

Loved the ideas for playing and learning at home and seeing what children do at nursery.

I wish I could provide constructive feedback, but nope! The evening and it’s content was perfect! So much effort made! Such a shame more parents didn’t come along.

If you didn’t manage along, see what you missed here STEM in Glenwood presentation

Block play provides children with opportunities to develop socially as they communicate and interact with others and to develop their imaginations through exploration. They faciliate the development of mathematical skills and motor skills as they lift, stack and balance.
