Our class names this year are...

Each of our classes has been named after a world famous STEM hero.  We have been learning about this hero and we are teaching the school about our hero through our class assemblies.  We had the portraits below commissioned (see here) and you will find these, along with our learning about our hero, in our Rainbow Room. Please ask us about our hero and why they are so special.

William Harvey

 

 

 

"William Harvey is famous for his idea on blood being pumped around the body by the heart. He was the first to describe correctly and in detail the circulation and its properties.  He said that blood was pumped around the body in a closed system. Blood was pumped by the heart through the body before coming back to the heart to repeat the process. This went against what was believed at the time to be true."

Leonardo da Vinci

 

 

 

 

"Leonardo da Vinci was a genius in many fields. He excelled at painting, drawing, sculpture, architecture, and engineering. He was a leading figure of the Italian Renaissance, a period of great achievement in the arts and sciences. Leonardo’s paintings Mona Lisa and Last Supper won him great fame. But he is also well known for his scientific studies."
