PUPILS at King’s Ely Acremont displayed wonderful teamwork and initiative when working on their latest STEM Challenge.
Children in Year 2 were tasked with building a castle out of recycled materials and were given just 10 minutes to design and discuss their ideas. The pupils then had an hour to complete the task. They had some wonderful ideas and clearly there are some budding architects at Acremont!
At King’s Ely Acremont, Year 2 children broaden their knowledge, skills and experience, venturing out of their comfort zone whilst developing resilience and co-operation through problem-solving activities. Year 2 children learn German, Games, Dance and Music with specialist teachers. They also regularly use computers and iPads to carry out research and learn simple programming skills.
As the children progress through Year 2 they are prepared for the transition to King’s Ely Junior. Activity mornings and visits give an exciting glimpse of the years ahead, whilst close communication between the teachers in Year 2 and Year 3 ensures that this important transition is a very positive experience.
