SPLATS Programme Success at QEGS

20th June 2024

Our SPLATS programme, which stands for Students Presenting and Learning Through Science, recently saw 18 boys and 18 girls develop their teaching skills by instructing science and technology lessons. These students taught up to 30 Year 5 boys and girls over two days, excelling as educators and growing in confidence and organization.

Here are two testimonials from the participants:

Kaleb:
“I aspire to have a career in education, so SPLATS was a great opportunity to learn some teaching skills. We spent the first day learning how to teach each activity and organizing our groups. Despite this, our first real session was a struggle, and we had to improvise. We got the hang of it after that, though, and the first day was a success, despite being a bit stressful. The second day saw us leading two more activities, which both went far more smoothly. By the end of the day, we had found a good rhythm as a group and significantly improved as teachers. Overall, SPLATS was a fun and enlightening, though tiring, experience.”

Rayan:
“I feel like SPLATS was a memorable experience as it put me in a teacher’s perspective, and I found it really fun to be teaching kids new things as it gave me a sense of contentment. However, it also showed me how tiring it can be as a teacher, making me aware of how much hard work teachers put into teaching us. However tiring it was though, I do not regret a single moment of it. Moreover, it helped me strengthen my leadership and teamwork skills, along with more confidence when speaking to people. Even more, I taught myself things I didn’t know! Overall, it was an amazing time and I enjoyed it a lot!”

We would like to congratulate the following students on their outstanding efforts with SPLATS: Aryan Sinha, Aston Ineson, Om Mani, Edison Field, Oliver Eldridge, Timilehin Kayode, Lucas Milburn, Buba Sanyang, Daniel Scott, Felix Bowles, Shalom Fabiyi, Kaleb Peters, Noah Tordoff, Henry Wareham, Sammy Parkin, Rayan Shahzad, and Sam Story.

Well done to all participants for their hard work and dedication!
