Growing the love of science for pupils





Learn The Lingo

Much Woolton Catholic Primary in Liverpool celebrated British STEM week with a range of investigations, visitors and workshops. The science week which last took place at the school in 2019, proved a great success, and resulted in a real buzz for science around the school. It was a great opportunity for crosscurricular learning with children producing some of their best work across all subjects. Now that COVID bubble restrictions in schools have been lifted they were keen to emulate this learning experience for all children. Head of school, Mrs Marie Wilson, said: “The aim for science day was to grow the children’s love, enthusiasm and knowledge for science in the wide world. Understanding that science is all around us and plays a huge part in our everyday life. Staff planned a whole day of fun and exciting experiments for pupils to take part in. “The idea behind their personally designed lab coats was, firstly, to encourage a link between home and school learning whilst also inspiring our children to become real life, little scientists that day and fully immerse themselves into the role of making predictions, asking questions, experimenting and investigating.”
