Primary Weekly Update 01/03/2019 from Dr Nici Wood

Dear Parents,

 

This week the Primary and Early Years sections embraced STEAM week.

 

What is STEAM?

With the ever changing advances in technology and the uncertainty of the vision of the 21st Century workspace, it becomes increasingly evident that we need to adapt our educational priorities to include opportunities for our children to encounter problems, creativity and collaboration. STEAM is an educational approach that combines the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points to guide students towards enquiry based learning.

 

Why is it important?

STEAM enables our students to make connections between disciplines and develop a repertoire of skills that will enable them to become innovators and designers.

 

This approach to learning pushes children towards thinking independently, giving them opportunities to fail, review, persevere with a problem and work towards a successful outcome. Children can work at their own pace, generating ideas on projects that personally inspire them. The method supports the student’s personal educational journey and promotes creative expression. Communication and collaborations are key, which in our bilingual context is entirely appropriate.

What have we been doing in school this week?

The children began the week with the submission of their homebased STEAM projects. They shared their ideas and reflected on their project designs following reviews by their peers. Lessons have been STEAM focused and Science curriculum objectives have been addressed. Our Friday STEAM Assembly celebrated the children’s achievements and also provided an opportunity for us to watch an exciting chemical display by our Secondary Science Lead. We were also fortunate to watch a robotics performance by a company TEKY. The absolute highlight of the week was the STEAM Fare that followed our Assembly, where the children showcased their projects to all members of the school, talking about process of development, modifications to their designs and reported on their findings. Mr Barney, teaching and non-teaching staff were all involved in the organization of this outstanding event and we are grateful for their efforts.

This week I enjoyed a lunch with the Year Group winners of our ‘Pogo perseverance’ challenge. They needed to draw upon their perseverance skills as we challenged each other to several games of ‘Jenga’. Congratulations to the students involved.

Finally, some of our MP3 students participated in the UNIS Basketball HAC event at the end of this week. I will let you know more about their performance in next week’s article.

Enjoy your weekend.
