Science is integrated into our teaching and learning program through Literacy, Numeracy and our Integrated Topics Scope and Sequence Plan. Science may be the major focus of an integrated topic, or it may be a minor focus. All students experience science learning each year, based on the Victorian Curriculum F-10.
‘Science is a dynamic, collaborative and creative human endeavour arising from our desire to make sense of our world through exploring the unknown, investigating universal mysteries, making predictions and solving problems. Science knowledge is contestable and is revised, refined and extended as new evidence arises. Science provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of important science concepts and processes, the practices used to develop scientific knowledge, of science’s contribution to our culture and society, and its application to our lives.’
The Science curriculum has two interrelated strands: Science Understanding and Science Inquiry Skills. Together, the two strands of the science curriculum provide students with understanding, knowledge and skills through which they can develop a scientific view of the world.
