In the week beginning the 21st March 2022, St Mary Magdalene Peninsula celebrated STEM week. Our theme this year was ‘Why?’ Throughout the school we explored a range of exciting scientific investigations over the week based on this theme.
- Reception made their own exploding volcanoes!
- Year 1 created their own slime and use their measuring skills to see how far their slime would stretch!
- Year 2 learnt about sorting materials. They used marbles and Lego as materials and investigated how they could roll their marbles away from the Lego without picking them.
- Year 6 investigated the effects sugary drinks has on teeth! They placed eggs in a range of drinks. After several hours, they then identified the effects the drinks had on the egg shell.
