Curriculum Goals

Year 1 and Year 2 Science
By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Perceive science as a collective effort and a way of thinking rather than just a body of facts
  • Be engaged in science-related issues that concern their lives, the society and the environment
  • Develop the domains that are integral to the conduct of science inquiry

Year 3 and Year 4 Science

Biology

Chemistry

Physics

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand that patterns and relationships underlie systems in Biology.
  • Use the method of scientific inquiry.
  • Apply critical and creative thinking to solve problems and evaluate ethical issues, and communicate ideas effectively.
  • Appreciate that the concepts of science are continually modified and expanded based upon new information.
  • Demonstrate attitudes such as objectivity, integrity, curiosity, initiative, inventiveness, creativity, concern for accuracy and precision.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:
