Term 1 Science

It’s been a busy term in the Science room with lots of investigations on force and electricity. The Year 3/4 students completed a number or experiments on force, gravity and magnetism using the Predict, Observe, Explain method to record their results.

The Year 5/6 students made their own circuits with switches and made a useable, portable torch with a switch.

Welcome to Science at Greenvale Primary School!

Hello, my name is Sujata Symons and I am very excited to be the first Science Specialist teacher at Greenvale Primary School in 2018! The students in years 3-6 have been very eager and enthusiastic to begin the Science program this semester.

Years 3/4 are focusing on Physical Science and are learning about Forces.

Years 5/6 are focusing on Physical Science and are learning about Electricity.

Our new Science room has lots of interesting areas for the students to explore, including a Discovery Table filled with amazing artifacts of non-living items to spark student interest and curiosity.

We also have three living additions in the classroom – Pedro the Siamese Fighting Fish and two Spiny Leaf Insects named Clive and Crunchie.

Stay tuned for more updates about the Super Science Program running this year!
