Science is all around us!
At St.Mary’s we believe that scientific investigation is one of the most powerful ways to learn; developing curiosity and perseverance as well as challenging what we know about the world. We aim to make science as practical as possible, linking it to real life contexts and giving a meaning to our learning.
We want our children to develop the key skills of investigation, problem solving and team work; empowering them to question the world around them and become scientific thinkers.
