Our science program ensures that the students of PFCS have a sound knowledge of the science curriculum from foundation to year 6. We undertake activities in science to understand biology, chemical sciences, physical science, earth and space sciences. We focus on science inquiry skill development. Each week students take part in exploring science in hand on interactive sessions. We use the instructional 5 E framework – Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate. Our teaching and learning program includes scientific experiments, direct learning and concept development. We undertake fieldwork with students investigating our local ecosystems (wetlands, ocean, beach and bushland). We intertwine indigenous learning in our science sessions. We learn about the natural ecosystems that surround and support us.
