St Joseph'sCatholic Primary & Nursery School

National Science and Engineering Week

Dear Parents,

During the week commencing 16th March, the school will be holding a special events week to coincide with National Science and Engineering Week.

During this week, there will be a number of special assemblies in which the children will learn about energy and observe science experiments. We will be looking at inventors, engineers and investigate the science behind moving. These activities will be closely linked to DT and the children will get the chance to design and make a contraption.

Year 3 have created a questionnaire for any parents or family members with a job in science or engineering. You will be able to collect one of the questionnaires from your child’s teacher. If you could return the completed form to the school by Wednesday 18th, we will display these during our science fair.

On Thursday 19th March, we will be holding a science fair in the hall during the afternoon. The children will be able to see what all the other classes within the school have been learning. This will hopefully be a chance to see a finished invention from each class.

The PTA are organising a star gazing event which will take place on Friday 20th March from 5pm- 7pm. There will be a guest speaker and the chance to learn more about stars. Further information about this event will follow shortly.

Yours sincerely,

Miss F Duncan
Subject Leader for Science
