We run several lunch time and after school STEM clubs, such as Engineering, Design & Technology, Allotment Gardening and Computing. The full club list for this term can be seen by clicking HERE
Mr McDonald runs the Engineering Club once a week. An exciting engineering challenge has been set for all during the half term holidays. See Engineering Half Term Competition for details.
Our newly established allotment area has been an excellent addition to the school STEM resources. The children check on the allotment daily and look after it.
Miss Donnelly, an experienced gardener, runs a weekly club which gives our children the opportunity to learn about gardening in further detail. This covers the whole life cycle of plants, from preparing the soil, planting the seeds, tending the seedlings and then reaping the harvest.
It was a great moment for the children when their first harvests came in. They have successfully grown butterhead lettuce and carrots so far. They particularly liked the tasting part!
"Once the weather warms up we will be planting peas, raspberries, fruit trees and potatoes! " - Miss Donnelly
Our science cabin was installed in October 2018. Dr Broadhurst, a school governor for many years and scientist opened it for us.
Children get the opportunity to be taught investigative science lessons, which are practical and fun by our science leader, Mrs Dearn. In addition to this, our Science Club is held weekly.
