Today Year 5 and 6 became environmental planners and used old maps of the local area to discover land uses in the past, then planned coastal defences for the future. Go to our Environmental Planners page to find out more!
Today Nursery and Reception have been lighting engineers, investigating light and shadows. We also had a family workshop after school where we made shadow tubes. To make your own shadow tubes go to our STEM at home page.
Today children in Reception and Nursery became marine engineers and investigated floating and sinking. To try a simple floating and sinking activity at home, using only tin foil and coins, visit our NUSTEM at home Foil Boats page.
Today Year 5 have been finding out about what happens underneath the ice in Antarctica. They then wrote their own poem about this. To Find out more and read some poems by children in other schools, visit our Underneath the Ice website page. You may even find their poems there soon!
Today Nursery and Reception children became Glaciologists and investigated melting ice. Why not try our NUSTEM melting ice activity at home? All you need is some ice cubes and bowls to put them in.
Today Year 2 became systems engineers, designing, creating. testing and improving marble runs to see how long they could get the marble to roll for. To find out more about systems engineering and to discover some fun activities to try at home, click here.
Year 5 found out about careers in medical physics and where physics and technology is used to look inside the human body. To find out more, click here.
Today Year 3 and Year 4 became geologists, observing and investigating meteorites which are rocks from space. To find out more about geology, click here.
Wow – what a brilliant week NUSTEM have had at Barley Mow. We’ve been so impressed the all the budding scientists and engineers we’ve met.
Here’s a run-down of what we got up to…
Monday – Coding robots with Y1, meteorite handling with Y4 and Marine Engineering with Y5.
Thursday – Marine engineering with Y3 and a KS2 Family Workshop.
Thanks again for everyone involved, we’ll be back in your school soon!
