STEM day in Reception

Throughout the whole school, children took part in science experiments and activities as part of STEM day (science, technology, engineering and maths).

In reception, we looked at how when we put soap on our fingers into a bowl of water and pepper, the pepper moves away from the soap/finger. This helped the children understand how soap works and importance of washing our hands to keep germs away. They thoroughly enjoyed talking about what they expected to happen in the experiment and trying it out for themselves!
