Secondary STEM Challenge Day

‘Please pass on my thanks to Mark, Paul and Angela. They delivered an outstanding day to our year 9 students today, and we had a blast doing it!

Mark hooked everyone in early, creating a real context for delivering aid or supplies..he nailed teamworking, transferable skills and encouraged everyone to engage and be part of it. The starting challenge was tough for many groups, but with a little nudging, or looking at those who were getting started, they took small steps and went on from there. It was excellent to see some students who may not have chosen to work together making an effort on a team enterprise and resolve any differences that they had.

Our Assistant Headteacher Stan Bedwell …was pleased with how into the activity the students were, and that they were enjoying it….as promoting technical routes, aspiration and the STEM agenda into employment, education and training are areas we want to develop. For me the excellent planning, contextualisation and delivery was right on all levels.
