6 Miss Houghton
Science Week - The children persevered this week investigating a variety of experiments on how to make the strongest bridge, the strongest glue and finding the best materials for a fingerprint investigation. As well as the this, the children have learned about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and the role of women in the this field, from Marie Curie to Katherine Johnson. We celebrated these fantastic women in International Women's Week by using our skills in abstract art to produce some fabulous portraits. And to top it all off, we had the pleasure of a video message from Rachel Lynch Policy Delivery Lead – COVID-19 Vaccines Deployment who answered some of our questions regarding women in STEM and of course some all important questions about Covid.
