2019 is going to be a great year for Ashtead Pre-Prep. This term we are launching our STEAM curriculum which will find its way into all aspects of our learning, from the Sciences to Literacy and also including the Creative Arts. The learning and application of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) skills will not only enrich these subjects but will give all the children the opportunity to foster positive and resilient attitudes towards learning. It also improves their ability to become critical thinkers. On a daily basis we read how vital it is that our young children develop these skills, along with collaboration and leadership. This all helps them to ensure they can make their mark in our increasingly varied and technological world.
We are really keen to share this with you all and would like to invite you to come along to our STEAM Parents Information Evening on Thursday 31 January. This will take place during our themed STEAM week. Here, the children will be attending workshop activities from visiting specialists in addition to a curriculum collapse Engineering Day.
Please keep an eye on the website news, the weekly newsletter or follow us on Twitter or Facebook @DownsendSchool and now also on Instagram @downsendschoolsurrey to catch up with our latest activities.
