Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths

Incorporating STEM lessons into our curriculum gives children the opportunity to learn and apply their knowledge to real life situations. STEM is an approach to learning and development that integrates the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It involves giving children a problem or task and allowing them to explore ways to solve it. It allows subjects and concepts to be interwoven and  makes learning meaningful and engaging.

Through STEM, students develop key skills including:

·       problem solving

·       creativity

·       critical analysis

·       teamwork

·       independent thinking

·       initiative

·       communication

·       digital literacy.

At Bishop Bridgeman we have STEM Super Learning Days each half term developing these skills, and sessions through the curriculum within a range of topics.
