Teaching and Learning

We are very fortunate at St. Mary's to have some fantastic resources, which allow us to teach the computing curriculum. We have 60 Chromebooks and 30 iPads, in addition to Smart touch-screen boards in classrooms and an advanced AV system in the Hall.  Using the Purple Mash scheme of work, and with the support of Vital, our staff can ensure that children at St. Mary's learn effectively and have the most up-to-date equipment available.

We are very serious about online safety in School, too. 

We continue to work with support from Naace and the Computing at School Network to ensure our learners are equipped to grow up in a ‘digital world’; aware of the risks online but able to enjoy technology when used appropriately.

If you have any questions regarding Internet Safety, please speak to Mr. Butterwick or follow the links below:

 

Science

Teaching and Learning

St Mary’s pupils will enquire and question in order to learn and develop a range of scientific investigative skills.  This will enable them to acquire knowledge of living things, materials and physical processes.  They will deepen their understanding of a range of ideas and concepts through challenging discussion and collaborative learning.

Our Science Curriculum aims to develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. It will assist our learners in developing an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of science enquiries that help our children to answer scientific questions about the world around them. It will equip them with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future, as well and developing the essential scientific enquiry skills to deepen children’s scientific knowledge. This is whilst ensuring that our learners also develop an enthusiasm and enjoyment of scientific learning and discovery, increasing their “Science Capital” and making them aware of how science is all around us.
