Welcome to the Science Specialist web page. My name is Mrs Jackson and I will be teaching Science across the school from Pre-primary to year 6 Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.
Science provides a way of answering interesting and important questions about the biological, physical and technological world. It is a human endeavour to make sense of our world through exploring the unknown, investigating mysteries, making predictions and solving problems. Science knowledge is constantly being revised, refined and further developed as new evidence arises.
The Western Australian Curriculum: Science provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of scientific concepts and processes. The curriculum supports students to develop scientific knowledge, understandings and skills to make informed decisions about local, national and global issues. Students enjoy the practical applications as well the experience the joy of scientific discovery, nurturing their curiosity about the world around them.
I will be covering the four content strands throughout the year.
- Biological Sciences Term 1
- Chemical Sciences Term 2
- Earth Sciences Term 3
- Physical Sciences Term 4
