Term 1 Science News – Mrs Symons

Welcome to Science at Greenvale Primary School for 2019.

Once again, I am very excited to be undertaking the Science Specialist role this year and I look forward to working with all of the students in Years 3-6. I will be working in the SCART room (room 35) from Monday – Wednesday. Each class will have Science in either Term 1 or Term 2 of the first semester.

Our Semester One focus is Biological Science which is understanding the study of living things.

Our topics for Semester One focus on:

Year 3/4 – Living Things

The students will explore living and nonliving things and the life cycles of plants and animals. There is also an environmental focus investigation on how to improve biodiversity within our school grounds.

Year 5/6 – Mission to Mars

The students will learn about the survival and adaptations of living things. They will explore and investigate the possibility of colonising Mars in the future. The students will design an organism capable of living on Mars.
