Science at St Mary's
St Mary's Amazing Research & Teaching Labs
"Failure is not the end, it's just the starting point of our next endeavour."
"More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."
Matthew 5: 3-5
At St. Mary's we love STEM! Each classroom has their own dedicated science zone where the children are able to undertake their own independent investigations and research. Children may bring in their own objects and artefacts to share with their class.
Every year we hold a dedicated STEM week for the whole school. All the classes carry out investigations around the school and take part in demonstrations from visiting science teachers. We record our findings in a variety of ways and hold an interactive science fair at the end of the week for our school families to attend where the children re-create the experiments they have carried out and share their findings. We have a huge amount of fun and the children gain many skills including what to do when something fails because at St. Mary's we believe that failure is not the end, it's just the starting point of our next endeavour.
