Last week all of our pupils engaged in our Annual Science Week. This year, the theme was “St. Mary’s P.S. Celebrating Science and Investigations.”
Our pupils enjoyed a fun filled week where they developed their scientific investigational skills. Our pupils participated in Mini-Beast hunts, tested materials properties, explored electricity, investigated senses, looked at the characteristics of living things, investigated the properties of light and sound and measured and mixed solutions.
Our Primary 6 pupils took part in a six-week project, where they planned, designed and created models or scenes based around their topic of WWII.
Outdoor learning has played a massive role in our pupils learning in the Junior Site and as you can see all of our pupils have enjoyed learning in this manner. The World Around Us is a big part of our curriculum here in St. Mary’s and we look forward to exploring and investigating even more in the future years.
More photos of Science week can be found on the class pages.
Some of our Primary 4 children participated in a Thai culture and arts workshop facilitated by Derry City and Strabane District Council. The children learned a lot about Thai culture and festivals, they completed Thai sand paintings and Thai fan painting. Thanks so much to Martin and Nadia for facilitating the workshop today, the children really enjoyed the activities. More photos can be viewed on the Primary 4 page on the website.
Mrs O'Donnells P3B class recorded their class assembly yesterday on the topic of friendship. Well done to all the boys and girls. The assembly is now available to view on the Primary 3 page.

The children have all been having fun in our new sandpit during 'Outdoor Learning'. The girls and boys are learning to work together, building walls, making mud pies and adding all the natural resources to our play. We are so happy the sunshine is here!
