Science Stars Science is well and truly alive at Blanford Mere!
We have had an amazing year immersing ourselves in the wonder, excitement and amazement of Science. The range of new initiatives introduced last year has continued to provide enhanced learning opportunities for the children. Everyone's Science Capital has certainly been further developed! I'm so proud of how much the children have progressed and achieved this year. Until next year, let's celebrate Science Stars from this half term... a big thank you from Mrs Woodley
Every Child Is Born a Scientist ... it's our duty to foster that wonder and enthusiasm so it remains with them.
