Our STEM Focus Week took place Monday 11th - Friday 15th February 2019 and was planned around the text ‘The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot’ by Margaret McNamara. All of the learning activities for the week were linked to English, Maths, Science and Computing.

"I liked learning about rockets and making rockets because they go into space!"- Kai
"My rocket went fast and I won!"- Zeca
"I loved solving the problem of 'Which material would be the most suitable for a rocket?'. We had to work well in a team and it was a challenge!"- Matas
