On Thursday, Year 6 had a fabulous day with all things STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths). First, we did some problem solving using our algebra skills to get the cogs whirring, followed by a challenging electrical science investigation. We explored the impact of how adding more cells (batteries) added to the brightness of a bulb and the volume of a buzzer. We even discovered through shortening the system, i.e. using fewer wires, the bulb shone even brighter. Watch out, Year 6 may now be inspecting your electrical circuits at home! In the afternoon, we started our DT project, which involved sawing pieces of wood measured to exact lengths. We all managed this task like experts, with all involved taking 8 fingers and 2 thumbs each home at the end of the day! We cannot wait to see what next week has in store for our STEM day.
