Year 3 - STEAM Confident

Our Year 3 students are truly shining in their STEAM endeavours. They recently embarked on an independent research mission, exploring various dinosaur facts. Equipped with laptops, they skilfully gathered data on dinosaur height, weight, speed, and the oldest fossil, all in preparation for creating their own Dinosaur Top Trumps card game.
They seamlessly handled units of measurement, from pounds to kilograms, feet to metres, and miles per hour to kilometres per hour. This cross-curricular learning opportunity also ties into our upcoming Maths curriculum.
In addition to their research prowess, their teamwork, problem-solving abilities, and dedication to the task were truly impressive.
