iDiscover week at Sir Thomas Abney, in partnership with Inspire, introduces Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers to primary school children through a week of work-related activities.
Research shows that pupils decide early in their school careers that science is ‘not for them’. Through early exposure to role models from STEM industries who look and sound like them, the aim is to change perceptions and challenge stereotypes, showing that gender or ethnic background is not a barrier to future success.
STEM subjects are brought to life through workplace visits, engaging experiments and hands-on activities, with opportunities to meet a wide range of volunteers. This week, pupils across the school will try out a range of amazing activities such as programming robots, create torches, coding computer games, extracting and testing DNA and much more!
Join us in wearing your favourite Christmas jumper to school and paying £1.00 to Save The Children. Collection buckets will be at the school gates at the start and end of the day to collect contributions.
Classes will enjoy their End of Term Class Parties. Parents are welcome to donate items of food for the parties. Please remember not to send in any items with NUTS or MEAT products. Nursery will have their party in the morning.
