Engineering

At Stoneyholme, we aim to inspire the next generation of engineers by targeting children from a young age. We provide the opportunity for them to explore the vast world of engineering and develop key skills for life, such as becoming critical thinkers and discovering varying solutions to different problems within a developing world.

 

Our aim is to challenge stereotypes at a young age before they become ingrained in the children's understanding of engineering. 

Galliford Try

 

During Summer term 1, Galliford Try (the company that is building the new school near our school) came to work with the year 6 children for a morning of activities. We split into two teams and took part in two different activities. 

 

The first activity was to work together as a team to build a huge tetrahedron! Have a look that the photos to see how we did this.

 

The second activity helped us to apply our understanding of electrical circuits that we learned about earlier in the year.

Engineering Fair 2018/19

 

During the Spring Term, we held our very first Stoneyholme Engineering Fair! The whole school was given the challenge to work as part of a small team - to design and build a bridge that would sustain the most amount of weight as possible. Children from Early Years to Year 6 demonstrated fantastic teamwork and designed and built bridges that withheld an amazing amount of weight! Well done to everyone that took part and a big thank you to all of the parents that came to support the children at the fair.

 

See you all next year for a brand new challenge!

Fly to the Line - Season 1

 

This year, all children in Year 5 took part in the 'Fly to the Line' project with the Royal Air Force. We experienced great success again, reaching the National Finals at RAF Cosford in Wolverhamton. The finalists had a fantastic day with Miss Isherwood and Mr Grimshaw and were able to have a look around the base as well as take part in the project.

 

Well done to all Year 5 children for your efforts throughout the competition!
