Science

Torrens Primary School has aligned its Science program with The Australian Science Curriculum.

The Australian Science Curriculum is divided into three interrelated strands

  1. Science Understanding
    • Biological sciences
    • Chemical sciences
    • Earth and space sciences
    • Physical sciences
  2. Science as a Human Endeavour
    This strand contains two sub strands:
    • Nature and development of science
    • Use and influence of science
  3. Science Inquiry Skills
    This strand contains five sub strands:
    • Questioning and predicting
    • Planning and conducting
    • Processing and analysing data and information
    • Evaluating
    • Communicating

Together, the three strands of the Science curriculum provide students with understanding, knowledge and skills through which they can develop a scientific view of the world. Students are challenged to explore science, its concepts, nature and uses through clearly described inquiry processes.
