The Force Awakens…….. for STEM Week!

STEM Week was launched with full force this morning, unveiling this years theme………….Star Wars!

At our whole school assembly, Mrs McLean introduced the theme and the various challenges for the week.  The pupils were played a video message from Darth Vader and were surprised by a visit from two of the movies characters.

Play Academy

We have recently started our Play Academy on Wednesday afternoons. This is an opportunity for the children to engage in play activities with P1a and Nursery children. Our activities during this block are all related to The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.

Here are some of the children’s comments about their experiences so far.

I liked going outside into the field. I shouted out some Gruffalo words and we found some Gruffalo pictures. Saskia

I was making Gruffalo cakes out of playdough in the Nursery.  Kayla E

I was building a den for the Gruffalo. I used wooden blocks. We turned the den into a car. Emilio
