Dear Parents,

Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) play an invaluable part in helping your child to develop academic, social and personal success. Through practical, hands-on problem solving, your child will develop transferrable skills such as creativity, curiosity, resilience, resourcefulness, collaboration and confidence to help pave the way to a wide open future.

As part of Nord Anglia Education, we are fortunate to collaborate with a range of prestigious organisations and institutions including UNICEF and Juilliard. For our STEAM programme we have linked with the world’s leading University in this field, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), this collaboration has included our teachers receiving hands-on training at the University, students from Year 6 visiting and learning at MIT each year and regularly scheduled In-School Challenges.

Today’s Parent Workshop led by our STEAM leader, Mr McArtney, talked about the impact of this partnership on our approach to teaching and learning. If you were unable attend but would like to learn more, Mr McArtney has added the presentation and key information on the School Story feed on Class Dojo.

This week sees the launch of the first of three challenges set by MIT exclusively for Nord Anglia schools. The theme for each challenge is ‘Superheroes’, with the focus on superpowers and adaptations in the animal kingdom, inspiring children to create new technologies and superheroes.

To celebrate the final day of term, and STEAM event #1, we invite all primary children to come dressed as animals on Thursday!

Have a wonderful week,

 

Jimmy Frawley, Head of Primary
