Curriculum - Science

Science provides an empirical way of answering interesting and important questions about the biological, physical and technological world. The knowledge it produces has proved to be a reliable basis for action in our personal, social and economic lives. 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 aims to understand a large number of observations in terms of a much smaller number of broad principles. Science knowledge is contestable and is revised, refined and extended as new evidence arises.

Science is a priority subject at Belmay Primary School as it belongs to the STEM area (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). It teaches students the Inquiry approach to problem solving and uses engaging and interesting topics to do so. Students get exposure to Science concepts through play, exploration, logical thinking and group work and are able to draw conclusions and make recommendations for changes for future investigations or for real-world applications. Belmay teachers use the Primary Connections resource to develop their teaching programs.

The four key conceptual aspects are:

  • Chemical Sciences

  • Physical Sciences

  • Earth and Space Sciences

  • Biological Sciences
