Science Week at St Mary’s First School goes with a bang!

St Mary’s First School has celebrated Science Week 2019 with a bang - literally. Experiments have involved film canister rockets, elephant toothpaste, immersive messy play and plenty of other whiz, bang and pop experiments. Over the past two weeks, the pupils have focussed on science: they have been learning about scientists, being scientists themselves and conducting a series of experiments. 

“Science is an intrinsic and fundamental part of the curriculum, it’s been lovely to see the children so engaged in the hands-on science we have been doing,” said Mrs Caruana, the Deputy Head Teacher. “The whole school came together for this celebration of science, Mrs Stych, our Science Coordinator, led the charge and as always, our enthusiastic staff members embraced the challenge head on and ran with it. The response has just been overwhelming: all the teachers planned a number of cross-curricular science based learning opportunities and the children have really loved it.”
