Big Questions

Small School - Big Questions

At St Mary's we encourage children to think about the world around them by asking questions about what they see, hear and experience. On this page you will find a range of big questions which the children have posed, as well as other questions which the children (and staff!) have had a go at attempting to answer.

Open-ended questions like those below seldom have right or wrong answers, but help to broaden children’s thinking processes, to develop their speech and language skills, and to build confidence in their ability to express themselves using words.


A new Big Question is posed every issue of our Awesome News!

How can we help make St Mary’s even better?

What does it mean to live in hope?

Can I think myself happy or am I stuck with feeling sad?

Can one person change the world?

How can you help someone if you are really far away from them?
