Sciences

Through our study of science, the children will find out about the planet Earth, forces, electricity and waves, biological systems, materials, and topical science. Learning through discovery, both indoors and outside, is important to developing good understanding.

Children and young people participating in the experiences and outcomes in the sciences will:

 develop a curiosity and understanding of their environment and their place in the living, material and physical world
 demonstrate a secure knowledge and understanding of the big ideas and concepts of the sciences
 develop skills for learning, life and work
 develop skills of scientific inquiry and investigation using practical techniques develop skills in the accurate use of scientific language, formulae and equations
 recognise the role of creativity and inventiveness in the development of the sciences
 apply safety measures and take necessary actions to control risk and hazards
 recognise the impact the sciences make on their lives, the lives of others, the environment and on society
 develop an understanding of the Earth’s resources and the need for responsible use of them
 express opinions and make decisions on social, moral, ethical, economic and environmental issues based upon sound understanding
 develop as scientifically literate citizens with a lifelong interest in the sciences
 establish the foundation for more advanced learning and, for some, future careers in the sciences and the technologies.
