Year Three 2017
Please take time to look at the photos and work samples of the children in Year 3. These samples of work can only provide a taste of the rich curriculum enjoyed by the students here at Connells Point
STEM Challenge - Beat the Flood (Practical Action Website)
Students look at flooding around the world then design and build a model of a flood-proof house
Flooding due to climate change can have a devastating effect on people's lives. Set on the fictitious island of Watu, students explore how STEM skills can be used to help communities be better prepared for flooding.
The challenge: Working as a team pupils design and make a model of a home able to withstand the effects of flooding...then test it by standing it in water and blasting it with a hose!.
