At Wellard Primary School, we aim to ensure that all students have opportunities to learn about scientific concepts in a safe, challenging and engaging environment. The focus throughout the school is for all students to gain a sound understanding of scientific concepts and how these relate to their lives. To assist in this process, we utilise the Australian Academy of Science - Primary Connections resources, that link science with literacy, and enable students to achieve a comprehensive grasp of the basic scientific principles.
The main features of the Primary Connections program include:
- Students developing scientific inquiry and investigative skills
- The curriculum resources, linking science with literacy
- Encouraging ongoing research (for both students and teachers) and enables thorough evaluation at the end of each program.
