STEM day presentations - November 2019, by Miss Hulse

Date: 30th Nov 2019 @ 8:32am

Yesterday afternoon, all of the children at St Peter’s took part in a STEM day challenge. The children had to use all of their science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills to produce a working marble run. The degree of difficulty got progressively challenging throughout school years, starting with nursery creating a simple structure using Lego up to Year 6 introducing a pulley stystem. Once the marble runs were completed, each class held a vote to choose their most successful marble run, these were then sent to the hall ready to be judged. The winners were then selected from EYFS, KS1, LKS2 and UKS2, the winners then received their very own marble run. All of the children should be proud of their achievements, as they all worked extremely hard throughout the day!
