It’s our project week at school, and this time, rather than focusing on a shared topic, we are focusing on a teaching and learning method (STEAM) which can be applied across the curriculum. We’ll be sharing the results on this page, so check back often as we update it!


Introduction to STEAM

STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and maths) is an educational method which allows for an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning, with the goal of providing a richer experience for children. It does away with some of the barriers which normally separate the subjects, and intentionally involves skills, standards, teaching and assessment from more than one subject.

STEAM is hands on and enquiry based, with an intentional focus on enabling children to; be more curious and to seek creative answers, to engage meaningfully with learning, to have a more resilient approach to tricky problems and learning to work through those problems, to take considered risks and to enjoy and embrace working with others.
