Our STEM Competition ends this week, and it has been great to see some of the entries so far. We have some very talented families. Remember to send pictures of your sustainable car to your class teacher through TEAMS or ask an adult to tweet the school.
If you have not had a go yet, why not try the challenge tomorrow whilst it is supposed to be rainy?
Please follow the links below for all of the information.
We are delighted to announce that our Primary 7 Young STEM Leaders have organised a competition as part of National STEM Day.
National STEM Day is an opportunity to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. It can also help promote skills for learning, life and work.
We are proud to promote sustainability, especially during COP 26, so this will play a role in the competition.
Please follow the link to see our leaders introduce the competition but below is the information.
||Create a car which is sustainable using every day household items. Can you use a renewable source?
||Monday 8th November – Tue 30th November
||Complete this task with your family. Get everyone involved to help you win house points. Will it be the Eagles, Falcons, Hawks or Ospreys?
||The task will help develop Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths skills.
It is great to work with our families.
It is great to win points and prizes for our houses.
|How to enter:
||Create your own model car using a renewable source and then post a picture/video on your class team or ask an adult to tweet the school.
We look forward to seeing your brilliant work.
Our STEM Ambassadors have been working extremely hard preparing for our whole school STEM day on 14th February, creating plans, activities and tasks based on Global Goal 2: Zero Hunger.
In order to fulfill our plans, we need your help! If you could please collect for us any recyclable goods – for example, cardboard boxes, glass jars (washed out if you can 🙂 ), yoghurt pots, bottles and other goods.
We would also welcome any donations of old shoes, guttering, wood or anything locally or sustainability made.
If you could please send any small donations in with your child and they will be delivered to P2K, P4B or P7C. If you have anything larger you wish to donate, please drop it in to the school office and it will make its way to our classrooms. Alternatively, please contact us if you have anything you’d like to hand in, but are unsure as to how to get it to us.
As always, thank you for your support; it is very much appreciated and allows us to develop the ideas of our pupils.
STEM Ambassadors, Mrs Kane, Mr Burrell and Miss Cauley
We are so very excited to begin our journey to becoming STEM Youth Ambassadors and spreading awareness and fun of STEM subjects around the school.
The STEM group will meet once a week on a Tuesday at lunchtime. If it is at all possible could we please ask that your child comes to school with a packed lunch each Tuesday, to allow us to have our full lunchtime to discuss all things STEM! If not do not worry we will make sure your child has enough time to eat their school dinner :).
