We are very pleased to announce that The Forest School and Millais have created a wonderful pack of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities which are suitable for primary school children. (Some of the activities might be slightly more suitable for the older children, but everyone is welcome to take part and have a go with parental support).
Please read the Parent Support Sheet – which explains how these activities work. Some of the activities are also being run as competitions. We will hand out the certificates when the children return in September. Any current year 6 children will have their certificate emailed to their parents in September.
If you have any further questions, please email Miss Gallagher or The Forests School directly.
Please send your work and photographs to your child’s class teacher at the class email address (e.g. email@example.com) or to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Thursday 16th July 2020. To enter any of the competitions – please email The Forest School directly. The competition activities also count towards your certificates.
You are very welcome to complete any of the activities after this date – they will remain on the school website over the Summer holidays.
We would like to thank Dr England (Forest) and Mr Holmes (Millais) for providing us with these wonderful activities.
