The Academy’s curriculum resources provide longer learning activities for use in a STEM club, for a STEM challenge day or to enhance and add context to the curriculum. Developed primarily to engage Key Stage 3 students with STEM subjects, such as D&T, ICT, science and mathematics, the resources give students the opportunity to learn by investigating big questions and working in an engineering context. T
Culcheth High School is very fortunate in having had the opportunity to offer free training in the use of these resources and how they can be effectively used within the curriculum in a variety of departments.
Two sessions on the use of the ‘Disaster Response’ and the ‘Winning Medals’ kits have already been delivered and the next session will run on Thursday 11th December 2014 @ 3.30pm:
- WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO BUILD ‘STEM’ (Science Technology Engineering & Maths) INTO YOUR TEACHING?
- WONDERING HOW YOU COULD INCLUDE NUMERACY SKILLS IN YOUR SCHEMES OF WORK?
- WANT A FREE RESOURCE KIT FOR YOUR SCHOOL?
Then the following session delivered by Martin Simmons of The Royal Academy of Engineering could be for you…The ‘Deployable Structures’ session will be delivered at Culcheth High School on Thursday 11th December from 3:30-4:30pm
The session is designed to help staff feel more confident in teaching a range of KS3 Maths topics including density, nets, transformations, scale, conversions, circles, area, compound shapes and problem solving based around encouraging the learning of maths (in a fun way!) within the engineering context of ‘deployable structures’ via a range of six activities and two case studies.
Please let us know if you wish to attend by Friday 28th November (refreshments will be provided).
The CPD sessions are open to all staff from any Warrington primary or secondary school.
