Our major focus for Science across the school for Term 1 is Physical Science. Prep, Grade 1 and Grade 2 will be studying Forces and Motion. Students will explore with how different objects move in different ways. They will use their bodies, toys and sporting equipment to demonstrate and find different movements and the forces that cause them to move.
Grade 3 and Grade 4 students will also be experimenting with forces and motion. They will get to use magnets to find magnetic materials and explore how magnets interact with each other and different materials.
Grade 5 and Grade 6 students will have STEM and Science. In these classes we will have a major focus of Electronics. Students will find materials that conduct and insulate electricity. Students will make a variety of circuits using different components like motors, lights and fans. They will also explore renewable and non-renewable sources of electricity.
