Stroud School children will soon be taking a giant leap into the cosmos during STEAM Week, with an exhilarating timetable of extra-terrestrial learning.
Launching STEAM week is World Book Day, where the theme is Space.
Children will be coming into school dressed as characters or space explorers from their favourite nonfiction books.
This will launch “STEAM” week where the children will explore a multitude of activities to develop their love of science, technology, engineering, art and maths.
During STEAM Week, Stroud children plan to boldly go where no child has gone before: looking at the stars, learning about planets, enjoying the planetarium and examining the very beginning of the Big Bang.
They will participate in lots of cross-curricular learning, using mathematical and statistical elements and engineering skills.
The children will also learn about propulsion and how rockets manage to leave the Earth’s atmosphere and make it into space.
They will make a variety of different engines using water, matches, chemicals and rockets and there should be some spectacular sights as their carefully designed rockets are propelled high into the air.
