2020 STEEAM UPDATE
STEEAM Club is currently on hold for 2020-21. There are still lots of exciting opportunities for children in class through a variety of challenges and competitions.
STEEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, English, Art and Maths.
STEEAM Club began at Pelham in 2018 as an additional challenge programme for children identified as high-potential learners. In 2019-2020 the club was run as an enquiry-based research project for selected children in Key Stage 2, on a Friday after school. The 'Pelham 100 Project' showcased children's interests, creativity and problem-solving skills. Places were weighted towards girls in response to there being considerably less women involved in STEM industries.
Thanks to the hard work of our subject leaders at Pelham, there are also a number of other opportunities for children to develop their passions and aptitudes through challenges and competitions.
- Selected children in Years 5 and 6 take part in the Primary Mathematics Challenge
- Selected children in Years 3 and 4 take part in the First Mathematics Challenge
- The Wimbledon Young Writers’ Competition provides an exciting challenge for children with a passion for writing to write a story or poem on a given stimulus. In 2020, we were delighted that from nearly 400 entries to the competition, all of Pelham's entries received recognition from the panel of judges.
