Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1: Full STEAM ahead

Read on for information about an exciting home-based project to design a vehicle that can move on its own and catch up on all the excitement from last week’s Reception and KS1 Sports Days.

Last week we reported on the winner of the Songkran STEAM Competition. If that whetted your child’s appetite for a STEAM focussed challenge then here is your opportunity to get involved at home.

Ms Sarah in Y6 is our newly appointed STEAM co-ordinator, and though she only officially starts her role in August is too excited to wait! She has lots of ideas for promoting the subject and is starting work across Primary this term. As well as setting up specialised areas and activities in school, she is running an exciting Home Based Learning project that some of you might like to get involved with.

Term 3 STEAM challenge – Street Smart

Self-driving cars may seem like science fiction, but the fact is that they’re currently being tested and could become part of our lives in the near future. Many cars on the roads today have ‘smart’ features and sensors that are intended to make driving safer. It seems to be, only a matter of time before cars will be able to drive themselves…

This term, our STA STEAM challenge is to design and make a vehicle which can move on its own. It doesn’t have to be a car – you may like to research different vehicles and combine features from different means of transport.

When you have completed your vehicle can you:

  • Provide a plan showing the materials that you used and what you did. This could be a diagram, a set of instructions or a picture with some words or sentences.

  • Take a photograph of your finished vehicle – you may also like to take some photos of any prototypes you make so you can see the improvements you have made.

  • Share your work with Miss Sarah (room C11 in the Year 6 quad, sarah.co@standrews.ac.th) and your class – what special features have you included? What are you proud of? What did you find tricky but were able to overcome?

There are lots of materials in the ‘STEAM’ area in the small quad – if you have any spare boxes or containers in your classroom, or at home, you may like to donate them to this area so that others can enjoy inventing and creating too.

Please share your work by Monday 4 June.

You can work on this project by yourself, or with a friend or sibling – I hope you have lots of fun researching, creating, testing and modifying

Sports Days

The weather was challenging this last week, but nothing could dampen the spirits of the Reception and KS1 students as they battled for supremacy in their respective House Sports Days.

They all did brilliantly and really showcased the skills they have been working on this year. Noisy and enthusiastic, there was a competitive edge, but a lot of cheering and support for everyone. A massive thank you to the organising team and well done to Mr Bob and Mr Damon for their MC roles at the two venues.
