Y5/6 Knex Challenge

Last Monday our Year 5 and 6 children took part in an amazing STEM Challenge.

The challenge was set by Gloucestershire Stemworks to design and build a piece of multi-use play equipment for a children’s playground.

Our children worked in pairs or threes to put their Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths skills to the challenge. We were incredibly impressed with their fantastic teamwork, innovative ideas and creativity, thinking skills and sturdy models!
