The Science program at Mernda Primary School runs in accordance with the Australian Curriculum Guidelines. Science is taught to all students from Prep to Grade 6 by our enthusiastic and talented Science Teacher. The school implements the Primary Connections Science Program and is based upon theoretical knowledge and reflective practices. All students participate in investigations throughout each unit, assisting their understanding and allowing students to build and create their own knowledge.
The students receive a one hour of specialist Science Teaching lesson per week. This ensures consistency across the school and allows knowledge and literacies to be extended and developed further, every year and across terms. Across the year all students participate in the four strands of science, being Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences and Earth Sciences.
Science takes place in our dedicated science facility. This facility has been well resourced and equipped with all the necessary equipment needed for the successful delivery of our Science program.
