Science Week 2023 runs from Friday 10th March until Sunday 19th March. This year's theme is 'Connections' and we will be launching the week with an assembly on Friday March 10th, asking the children to think about the many different connections in science.
Our focus at MJS will be on how we can be inspired by connections with parents, who work in STEM; several parents have kindly offered to visit classes and talk to the children about their jobs and the connections they make every day in science. For example, we have parents visiting who work for the Environment Agency, as a crop scientist and as a medical doctor. Redwood class is also visiting the Aerozone at East Midland Airport to learn about STEM connections at the airport, which has been kindly offered by one of our parents who runs the educational provision there. We are very excited to hear about what they learn!
Throughout the week, we will be running a poster competition with one prize per year group. We will be encouraging the children to think of connections within science topics that they have been taught this year and also better connection that we, as humans, could make to help protect our planet.
Some teachers will be setting homework linked to science week and it will be exciting to see how creative the children can be!

We would love to hear about any extra activities that the children do (or see some photos) and we wish everyone a fun, informative and well connected Science Week 2023!
