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.

Baboon on the Moon

We have been using the Screening Shorts film ‘Baboon on the Moon’ for our reading this week. We listened to the film without a picture and made notes of all the sounds we heard. We then used these sounds to piece together the events of the story. We even managed to guess that the character was sad because of the sounds!

all the sounds we heard
Baboon brushing his teeth
Baboon lights up the moon
Baboon playing his trumpet sadly
