Our Learning

At Largs Bay School, students from Reception – 6 participate in STEM lessons in our purpose built STEM building. Higher order thinking skills are crucial in STEM, where we want to challenge students to go past remembering, understanding and applying and begin to create, evaluate and analyse. STEM lessons also embed the 21st Century skills of critical and creative thinking, collaboration, communication and ICT skills as essential skills for all learners at Largs Bay School.

Technology has become an integral part of our everyday lives. For this reason, technology is integrated in to all learning areas and every age group of education at Largs Bay School. Technology is used daily within classrooms with interactive and engaging iPad integrated activities using Seesaw along with other applications. Technological concepts are taught through design and digital technology.

Students across all year levels develop coding skills through a range of engaging and meaningful online and offline experiences. Our focus for STEM is to expose students to engaging and meaningful challenges to develop critical thinking skills and to build resilience. Engagement in Science and Technology simply requires a creative idea and a willingness to continue regardless of setbacks, as first you have to learn from errors or mistakes before success can be achieved.
