Children, staff and parents across the Palladian Academy Trust enjoyed two evenings of STEM celebrations at Ralph Allen School earlier this week; EYFS and KS1 on Monday & KS2 and KS3 on Tuesday. Representatives from each year group in every school attended and they did a super job at showcasing the fantastic learning from their year group. Well done and thank you to all the pupils and students who took part.
The celebration events followed a week of learning focused around the STEM subjects, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in every year group in each school around the theme of ‘journeys’. Learning ranged from finding out about reflective materials and when these might come in useful, to building bridges and making things fly. All the children engaged really well with the topic and produced some excellent work.
‘It was really exciting to welcome to Ralph Allen School young scientists from throughout the PAT, joining together to share knowledge and enthusiasms. Thanks to the staff who made this possible, and especially to Claire McMurtry, Headteacher of Oldfield Park Infant School, for her leadership and coordination.
Many of our students will have futures in STEM and STEAM in the future, we know, and it’s possible that these two evenings will help them on their way towards this.’
