The study of Science contributes to the development of many of the attributes of a Moreton Bay College graduate.
The introduction of the Australian Curriculum in the area of Science has been an exciting time for educators and we are currently exploring the new Science curriculum. Teachers are adjusting programmes as appropriate to ensure the understandings for the girls in all areas are consolidated. Science in the Primary School at Moreton Bay College is delivered through the Unity of Inquiry and is based on the Primary Investigations program and Primary Connections, Science resources developed by the Australian Academy of Science, which integrates the biological sciences, physical sciences, technology and the environment.
The students learn while working out explanations for themselves over time and through a variety of learning experiences. The hands-on activities promote meaningful learning and conceptual understanding. The co-operative learning strategies used in Science in the Primary School builds students’ self-esteem, leadership and communication skills. The students learn to co-operate with each other using team skills. They use equipment and tools to observe, test and measure results. The activities relate closely to students’ experiences at home, school and in the community. Students progress through five stages during their learning experiences – engaging, exploring, explaining, elaborating and evaluating. Students learn that science and technology are an important part of their daily lives. Many excursions and incursions support and enhance the Science programs within the College.
