A: English Language ARTS
M: Application of MATHEMATICS
In Year 3, we have been doing some amazing work in our STEAM lessons on a Monday afternoon.
STEAM is an integrated approach to learning and gives our students opportunities to showcase their talents and creativity. Over the past two weeks our students have been participating in a variety of lessons involving problem solving through engineering and experimentation.
They have been constructing bionic hands, marshmallow catapults and structures to stop eggs from breaking. Students and teachers engaged in STEAM make more real-life connections so that school is not a place where you go to learn, but instead becomes the entire experience of learning itself. We are always learning, always growing, always experimenting.
