At St Mary’s we believe science is a unique subject that can stimulate new ideas and curiosity in our children. We aim to foster a greater understanding of scientific concepts as well as an inquisitive desire to test theory s and ideas. One way this is done is through WOW science activities which are used to start each new science topic. This involves completing an experiment that showcases the wonder of science and then recording the questions that interest them. In subsequent lessons we aim to cover all the questions that the children asked in order to generate a real interest and engagement with the subject.
