Autumn Term Review:
Digital Week workshops provided by 3 took place this term from Y2-6. The focus was digital media, coding and musical composition, providing support for staff in delivering their DCF strands. Nearly all pupils who took part demonstrated high levels of engagement and further sessions developed by teaching staff.
Spring Term Review:
Summer Term Review:
All PVG members have monitored ICT and Science throughout the school, which has improved their leadership and understanding of school improvement.
Nearly all pupils have achieved expected levels, or better, within the Science and Technology subject areas. This is evidenced through our LPS monitoring systems. For example in lower KS2 pupils have effectively communicated on how gravity has influenced their paper helicopter enquiry results.
STEM development at LPS has improved the application of Literacy skills across the curriculum, for example in FP nearly all pupils successfully developed their understanding of the Water Cycle using oracy strategies such as 'Babble-Gabble' in order to plan an explanation text.
STEM development at LPS has improved the application of Numeracy skills across the curriculum, for example in FP & KS2 nearly all pupils are able to support their enquiry findings using various levels of data handling, from bar charts to scatter graphs.
Our next steps are:
Further improve independence in STEM learning using Challenge and Mission approaches.
