Participants in the course will learn the knowledge and skills needed to guide their K-6 students toward being fully prepared year 7 science, using correct concepts, scientific techniques and language. They will see demonstration lessons using every day, cheap and easily obtainable resources.

This course will begin by teaching the relationship between the K-6 learning process skills of investigating and what year 7 and 8 students do in high school.  The presenters of the course will then focus on each of the content strands of the NSW K-6 Science and Technology syllabus for the Australian Curriculum.

Rationale for the course:

Implementation of the Science and Technology Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum by primary teachers requires consideration of the knowledge, skills and understandings year 7 students should have when entering high school.

This course teaches the primary teacher how the content and language of their syllabus relates to the year 7 Science classroom and beyond, and what learning is needed by students preparing for high school science, allowing greater continuity from primary school to high school in science.

Summary of the course:

Participants will be taught by experienced presenters to interpret the science outcomes in the NEW NSW K-6 Science and Technology Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum. By meeting these requirements participants with be able to thoroughly prepare their students for high school. By demonstrating a range of examples of hands-on lessons for each of the six content strands as well as the important learning process and skill of investigation, the presenter will enable participants to acquire and apply scientific knowledge, understanding and skills, which will allow participants to evaluate teaching/learning activities based on science. Further teacher learning opportunities will include updating existing K-6 programs based of knowledge gained in this course.


This event is accredited for 3 x 2 hours with NESA at the Profcient Teacher level
