This year, in Science, students will be exploring various topics linked to the Primary Connections program. They will be encouraged to think scientifically when making predictions and recording observations, as well as ask questions. Students will have opportunities to work collaboratively with others during discussions, when completing tasks and conducting experiments.
In Semester 1, the focus will be on Earth and space sciences & Biological sciences. The topics students will be exploring include living things; the water cycle; the Earth, sun & moon; geological changes to the Earth’s surface and extreme weather. Within each of these topics, there will also be an embedded focus on developing Science Inquiry skills and recognising the importance of Science in everyday life.
