In 2014, we are pleased to be able to offer Science as a specialist subject using PrimaryConnections. We will be focussing on Chemical, Physical, Biological Science and Earth and Space.
PrimaryConnections: Linking science with literacy is an innovative program developed by the Australian Academy of Science which links the teaching of science with the teaching of literacy in primary schools. The program provides quality curriculum resources and a professional learning program. PrimaryConnections focuses on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in both science and literacy.
PrimaryConnections is aligned with the rationale and aims of the Australian Curriculum: Science. It supports the Australian Curriculum’s national implementation by continuing to provide an innovative, inquiry-based program linking the teaching of science with literacy. PrimaryConnections provides exemplary curriculum resources and a sophisticated professional learning program.
The Australian Curriculum: Science is organised around three interrelated strands:
Science Understanding (SU)
Science as a Human Endeavour (SHE)
Science Inquiry Skills (SIS)
