Our science program centres around an inquiry based approach where students learn through hands-on exploration of scientific concepts. Lessons are designed to encourage students to make connections between prior knowledge and experiences in order to build on their scientific understandings. A variety of scientific topics are covered with each aligned with the Western Australian curriculum. These include Physical sciences, Chemical sciences, Biological sciences and Earth and space science. Famous scientists and their contributions to society are also celebrated throughout the year.
Throughout the year students develop their skills in recording observations and data as well as making real world connections with the content. Students are given a variety of opportunities to display their knowledge using diagrams, oral and written observations, report writing and formal testing. Science is celebrated through whole school incursions and the Colour STEAM Day event each year.
