Diamond Creek Primary School offers a dynamic, collaborative and engaging Science program where students investigate, explore, make predictions and solve problems. Students have the opportunity to experience the joy of scientific discovery and nurture their curiosity about the world around them. The curriculum supports students to develop their scientific knowledge, understandings and skills to make informed decisions about local, national and global issues. Throughout their journey in the Science program offered at Diamond Creek Primary School they develop critical and creative thinking skills and challenge themselves to identify questions, apply new knowledge, explain science phenomena and draw evidence-based conclusions using scientific methods.
We aim to support students in developing an interest in Science by expanding their curiosity and willingness to explore and ask questions about the changing world. We help students to use a range of scientific inquiry methods, including questioning, planning and conducting experiments and investigations, collecting and analysing data, evaluating results and drawing evidence based conclusions. A collaborative learning environment is created where students enjoy communicating and justifying their findings to fellow students and debating scientific arguments and claims.
