STEM – Bring it On! Big Bang 2019

Some of the children in year 4 were chosen to take part in an incredible experience this week. The special STEM-focused Big Bang fair is free, and it gave us the chance to try out over 100 hands-on activities, see dozens of mind-boggling shows, hear from inspiring engineers and scientists from some of the UK’s biggest companies and find out about the opportunities available in STEM.

The exhibition was split into separate zones, so we got the chance to explore all aspects of engineering. This helped us to learn about and understand the different career opportunities available in a wide variety of organisations. In every one of the follow zones, we had real hands-on experiences all delivered by North East businesses!

The zones were:

• Subsea, Oil & Gas, Renewables, Energy

• Automotive, Rail, Aerospace

• Chemical, Biotech, Pharmaceutical

• Civil, Structural, Construction

• Creative, Digital, Technology

Take a look at some of the amazing things we did throughout the day. We are the future scientists and engineers of the North East!

Northumberland School Games!

Some pupils from Y4 represented us at The School Games this Year as part of the ‘Activator’ (leaders) team.

Some pupils from Y3 also sang in the choir at the event and took part in some activities.

It was an amazing day!

Conscience Alley

We used this drama technique to help us persuade Roger from our novel “I was a Rat!” to make the right decision.
