Science emphasises outcomes for students that are both knowledge and skills-based. The planned units are dynamic and theme-based reflecting the new Australian Curriculum. Each term of each year level addresses a different strand of Science. A wide range of texts, practical activities and web-based learning ensures our students are well prepared for high school.
The five strands of Science include:
- Physical World
- Earth and Space
- Living World
- Material World
- Digital Technologies
In Science and Technology lessons students will:
- develop an appreciation of the contribution of science to finding solutions to personal, social and global issues relevant to their lives now and in the future
- develop a willingness to use evidence and reason to engage with and respond to scientific and technological ideas as informed, reflective citizens
- develop interest and positive, informed values and attitudes towards science and technology
- recognise the importance and relevance of science and technology in their lives now and for their future.
