Partnership STEM classes
STEM partnership sessions focus on the real-life applications of structure, modern materials and dynamic forces. Each session is practical with something to take home at the end to prompt discussions with parents. It is aimed at Year 5 pupils and can accommodate 6-8 students. The specialist teacher works with the same group each week for and pupils interested and enthusiastic about science and engineering are encouraged to attend.
To develop a mutually beneficial partnership between the two schools with a particular focus on STEM activities. Primary School children have the opportunity to experience lessons run by our specialist teacher in their own schools. Our own teachers are benefitting by gaining experience in teaching in the Primary environment.
This Partnership initiative has been going on for four year and was introduced by one of our STEM teachers who had previously been involved in Partnership Maths lessons.
The Head of Partnership coordinates the programme that is run by a STEM teacher who is timetabled for this Partnership activity one afternoon a week. We provide the necessary equipment and materials for the projects.
We ask for regular feedback from the Primary Schools who are involved in the program and adapt the sessions accordingly.
