We have been very busy thinking about how we could help with an oil spill as part of  STEAM week. We learned all about an oil spill that happened in the Gulf of Mexico and spent the week investigating ways to help with the clean up. We created art work using oil to raise awareness of the spill, investigated the best materials to remove oil from water and even designed and created our own inventions to sewerage and remove the oil from the sea. STEAM week was a chance for us to showcase our communication, scientific and engineering skills. We know that Mrs Howe and Miss Laughton were so impressed with the creativity and enthusiasm we brought to this topic. We also thoroughly enjoyed our first Crystal Maze challenge and were so pleased that so many of our families came along to help us complete the challenges.
