STEM Week – The Final

Wow – what a week! All money from the Bank of St. Charles was collected, counted and locked away.

Each class recorded their invention pitch for Mrs Higgins and Mrs Nealings (the dragons) to watch. They ranked the inventions in order and allocated money to each pitch – from £800 down to £100. This money was added to the total amount of money that each class had made over the week. From this, the top 3 earners were chosen for the final. With tension building and only moments until the final, the finalists were notified – Year 1, Year 2 and Year 5.

Each class pitched their invention to the entire school in a fierce, competitive assembly. The pitches were perfect and each child remained cool, calm and collected – Y1 even told Mrs Higgins and Mrs Nealings how lovely they looked!

Each child came equipped with a single note of money. After the pitches, they had a tough decision to make because they had to vote which invention they liked the best. Voting boxes, one for each finalist, were placed outside the hall and children had to place their money into the box they wished to vote for.

The votes will be counted and verified and the winner will be announced next week in our grand finale. As for the losing 3 classes… their teachers will be dunked with custard and jelly!

I hope you have enjoyed STEM week as much as the teachers have. It has been fantastic to see your enthusiasm and I truly hope it has inspired some of you to become some form of scientist when you’re older.

If you really can’t wait until your next science lesson, at home you can try this EGGcellent (!!!) experiment from Milo and Marvin:
