23rd - 26th April 2019, St Peter's were very lucky to be given the challenge of STEM week, the children were certainly challenged and lots of fun was had by all!

What is STEM?
STEM is the future. It links the subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths together; this gives us the opportunity to greatly enjoy building our knowledge through some amazing activities and projects.

Within this special week children were given a different challenge linked to a Bible story that would promote their problem solving skills, the children had to use their knowledge of all four subjects and logical thinking to solve challenges.
