STEAM Fortnight Week 2 – Juniors

Week two of STEAM fortnight kicked off with a bang in our STEAM Assembly. The Year 9 pupils delivered an exciting, engaging and interactive assembly about the different areas of STEAM and finished off with the crowd favourite ‘Elephants Toothpaste’. Pupils were able to try out different experiments and were grateful to the senior pupils for sharing this assembly with us.


Pupils in Years 1 – 6 took part in a ‘Dome Workshop’ where they were able to watch Scientific Documentaries in a Dome, a real personalised experience. Year 2 had this to say about their experience:

Our adventure took us into a fascinating dome where we witnessed the magic of seasonal changes first-hand. We marveled at the reasons behind these transformations and discovered the diverse types of weather that accompany each season and the different instruments that is used to measure the different types of weather. It was an exhilarating journey of learning and discovery!


Throughout the week, the pupils also got to continue witnessing the ducklings growing up. They sadly went back home during our second week of STEAM fortnight but the pupils loved seeing the ducks swimming around and getting their new feathers. The pupils will miss them very much.


Pupils were excited to take part in their House Challenge. Year groups worked together in their houses to try and workout the challenges. Pupils in Kindergarten and Reception were given Duplo Challenges to recreate tricky patterns. Pupils in Year 1 and 2 made ‘walking rainbow’ and created patterns. Pupils in Year 3 and 4 were learning and creating messages in Morse Code and Pupils in Year 5 and 6 were creating Art in Water. The pupils worked really hard to create the best designs and closely follow instructions to fully understand the task at hand. The Houses earnt point for the teams and a winner will be revealed after the break.


Pupils also entered competitions such as the Baylab Lab Coat Designing competition, the British Science Week Poster Competition and Pupils in Year 5 and 6 took part in the Maths Bee. The results will be revealed soon, Good Luck to all that entered. Pupils also took part in their own class experiments including testing with floating and sinking, using different materials, looking at ‘The Impact of Particle Size’.

On the last day pupils all came together for a treat to watch a film about Time Travel with all pupils from Lower Kindergarten to Year 6 in the hall. Pupils in EYFS, Year 2, 3 and 4 went on a Forest Walk whilst Year 1 were on their trip to Willows Farm and Years 5 and 6 competed in the Maths Bee. It was a great way to finish off a brilliant two weeks of learning and fun.
