STEM Week here at St Mary’s is a week where all of the children have the chance to take part in exciting and engaging learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Children in Foundation Stage and Year 5 experienced the wonders of the planetarium; a brilliant resource provided to us by the University of Hull free of charge! Every year group enjoyed a visit from a parent/carer with a STEM-related job and it has been great to hear children talking about how they would now like to become engineers, chemists and scientists as a result of finding out more about these roles. One of the many highlights of the week was our Key Stage Two Science Fair on Thursday afternoon. The children worked so hard on their science projects, all of which focussed on the children attempting to solve a problem which they cared about. It was very impressive the amount of effort the children had put in to their projects and the commitment and passion they demonstrated for the issue they were trying to solve.
The week really was a success and it was wonderful to see the children so absorbed in their learning, displaying such high levels of enthusiasm and curiosity. A massive thank you to Miss Hart , to all of the staff and parents/carers who gave up their time to provide the children with memorable and enjoyable learning opportunities.
